Will you be the next Frogger of the Year?
Franchisees with sweetFrog come from all walks of life. Some come from a long line of entrepreneurs who have worked within their family owned and operated business for generations. While others are brand new to business ownership and have never worked for themselves before. Regardless of your experience we can help you find the sweetFrog model that works well for you.
The most important thing to know is that regardless of where you are in life we have franchise opportunities available to help you achieve your goals and aspirations. Great sweetFrog franchisees are passionate people that connect well with the communities they live in. They have experience managing employees and are often very involved in the communities through volunteering with local nonprofit and civic organizations.
Ideal sweetFrog candidates are college educated or have served in the military with an established professional career. Many of whom are family orientated and looking to make an investment that will benefit their community. Our team looks for franchisees who have strong moral values and are not afraid of a ‘hands-on’ work ethic.
Types of sweetFrog owners
Owner/Operator – Almost every sweetFrog franchisee begins their journey as an owner operator. This type of franchisee elects to work in their business alongside their hourly employees. This allows them an opportunity to learn their business from the inside out. Their journey focuses on ensuring outstanding customer service and building a community of sweetFrog fans by networking with other local business owners, non-profit and civic organizations. This type of franchisee will often use their sweetFrog franchise as a transitional step from their current corporate job or familial obligations. As they build up confidence as an owner they will usually transition from a daily employee to focusing on new ways to grow and diversify their model through the acquisition of other locations or expansion with our mobile opportunities.
Multi-unit Operators (Executive model) – The majority of existing sweetFrog franchisees currently fall within the multi-unit operator or executive model franchise category. Currently about 78% of our franchise family own 2 or more locations. These individuals have opted to build a rich robust portfolio utilizing their experience and managing several locations. They typically hire a team of employees that will oversee the day-to-day operations while they focus on marketing and managing the business while looking for new and innovative ways to interact with business owners and clients. The franchisee is more focused on setting goals to further scale their businesses and continue to grow within their markets.
