    Pros

    Best reason would be the food and tips, and of course the ice cream!

    Cons

    Management is unorganized, has no idea what they are doing, and put blame on others when they are in the wrong.

    Advice to Management

    To the franchises, go back to corporate.


  2. Corporation = Good Franchise Owner = Not so good

    Pros

    The best reason to work for Friendly's is to gain experience. Lots of opportunity to deal with children and seniors.

    Cons

    No real cooking opportunity except for eggs. Most of the food is shipped from central location which guarantees fresh produce isn't fresh.

    Advice to Management

    Franchise owners should be required to attend sensitivity training.
