What Does a Franchise Provide?

A reputable franchise provides site selection, operation support, marketing materials, and ongoing guidance to set its franchisees up for success. At Smokin’ Oak Wood-Fired Pizza, we go the extra mile to support you. With flexible restaurant franchise models, initial training, and comprehensive support, we provide our franchisees with everything you would expect from a world-class franchisor.

Site Selection and Build Out

When you choose an established franchisor, you’ll boost your business success with professional site selection. Site selection can make or break your business, and choosing a user-friendly location can help you hit the ground running with heavy vehicle and foot traffic and high visibility. At Smokin’ Oak Pizza, our process starts with site selection, lease negotiation, and advisement from our experienced Corporate Architect.

We also provide construction guidance, including a ready-to-order list for fixtures, furniture, equipment, and smallwares. This way, you won’t have to worry about sourcing equipment before your grand opening.

Operational Assistance

Operational assistance can make all the difference, especially if you’re a first-time business owner. Every franchise owner should have a “how-to” guide at their disposal to guide their operational decisions, start the hiring process, and keep their business running smoothly.

Our Franchise Support Team is here to assist you throughout every step of the process. Our Initial Franchise Training, conducted on-site at our flagship restaurant in Rochester, MN, provides full start-up support for new franchisors. This comprehensive program covers everything you need to know.

Franchise Marketing Materials

Effective franchise marketing is the best way to prepare for a successful Grand Opening. When done right, franchise marketing can help you attract new customers, boost awareness, and drive revenue to your business.

Today, most marketing is online. The good news? Since you’re already working with an established brand name, you’ll have brand awareness and a proven reputation to support your digital marketing strategy.

During your initial franchise training program, our marketing materials will help you build a powerful strategy for your new business. We’ll advise you on your Grand Opening, along with our ongoing advertising and marketing programs that you’ll conduct in your territory.

Ongoing Support and Guidance

Whether you’re an experienced entrepreneur or a first-time business owner, you deserve a support model that works for you. When you choose an emerging brand like Smokin’ Oak Pizza, you’ll work directly with the founders of the company.

We’ve developed an online Franchise Intranet System to support our Franchisees. In addition, our custom Operations Manual addresses every aspect of our business—from Daily Operations to Human Resources to Advertising & Marketing—to ensure you have everything you need at your fingertips.
