    Pros

    DL Rogers is the Franchise operator in my area. I did extensive research on this company. I could not find a single negative review anywhere and for good reason. Very family orientated and pro staff and absolutely pro customer. A culture of its own. You will find that you're part of something bigger. A positive impact on my view of quick serve.

    Cons

    None. This is a new position

    Advice to Management

    Keep on doing what you're doing. You're right on target.
