    Pros

    Extremely laid back “west coast” culture. They’re very good at hiring the right personalities to mesh with a team. This is the only company I’ve ever worked for where you have so much exposure and contact with the top leadership of the company. I could reach out to any of the Chief Officers at anytime and know I would hear back directly from them. Management recognizes many of the current issues and are working on them as best they can.

    Cons

    The Franchise operators can be difficult to work with. They are more business investors than operators of their businesses. If they spent more time inside their own businesses they would understand the business better. Many of them have multiple business ventures and multiple restaurant businesses they oversee so the lack of focus can show.

    Advice to Management

    There has to be more accountability taken with franchise operators and a clearer outline of who controls which parts of the business.
