What experience do I need to have to become a Yogurt Persa franchise owner?

In areas outside Ecuador, we are primarily seeking multi-unit franchise operators through Area Development Agreements.  Franchise owners will be expected to maximize market share in their territories, comply with Yogurt Persa standards, support Yogurt Persa’s strategies, provide accurate financials, and constructively participate in the franchise system.  We seek franchisee prospects who have business ownership and people management experience; prior foodservice operations experience is also highly preferred. In exchange for your commitment to the Yogurt Persa brand and system, we will provide the training, tools, recipes and resources you need to open your franchise and operate it effectively.
