We are here to help you succeed and that is why we offer support at every level.
Site Selection – One of the most important parts of any franchise is location. When it comes to selecting your site, we assist in reviewing key standards that are important in the success and survival of your franchise. We recommend utilizing a real estate broker for selecting a suitable site location and will assist in the process of reviewing leases and contracts.
Store Development – We will provide the franchisee with architectural assistance for drawings and specifications. Together, we will negotiate with construction contractors and suppliers to make sure your build out is cost effective.
Purchasing – A benefit of being in the Billy Sims Barbecue franchise system is inclusion in our unified purchasing program. Our continued growth and success has given us the opportunity to develop key relationships with vendors and suppliers. We negotiate system wide pricing structures for the entire Billy Sims Barbecue franchise system and continually monitor market inventories and prices.
Training- We offer a comprehensive four-week training program at our corporate location in Tulsa, Oklahoma that shows you, your managers and employees the intricate parts of running a successful Billy Sims Barbecue Franchise. We also provide continued field support with our operations team along with quarterly meetings, best practices and operating manuals.
Marketing – Our marketing team will assist you with all marketing and advertising activities. We help negotiate print, radio and television advertising rates in your local market.
