    Pros

    They pay on time and provide decent benefits

    Cons

    The job of business development coach is essentially delivering legal notices to franchisees to pay their over due bills, deal with franchisees walking away from their businesses and discussions with franchisees about how MTY ruined their lives by taking money from their accounts non stop. I had 6 suicide discussions in 13 months with franchisees. The business model does not work, the goal is to float it to the next buyer who runs into the same issue 6 months down the line. Extensive travel paid from my own pocket, not returned to me for 2 plus months in some cases. Make sure you have big money open on your credit card. Head office was a revolving door with firings happening every month, usually bringing in someone on a lower salary doing more work.

    Advice to Management

    Provide company credit cards to you staff or pay expenses in a reasonable amount of time. Paying out of pocket is not reasonable without significant pay raises. Adjust the business model to allow franchisees to make a profit.
