Marketing And Public Relations Play A Vital Role In Growing The Brand

The initial onboarding of a franchise owner at Young Chefs Academy includes extensive instruction in marketing their YCA business. That's only the beginning, however, says Shelly Young, vice president of marketing.

“We support our franchise partners by providing unified, brand-focused strategies, resources, and ongoing training and support, all designed to preserve brand standards while expanding brand recognition on a local and national level,” Young explains.

“This includes delivering differentiated strategies and an abundance of resources to accomplish specific marketing objectives and to execute brand vision across all channels, including a multi-channel digital media strategy. We are fortunate to have a collaborative team of franchise owners who embrace the company’s values and vision, which contributes to the strength and continued growth of the brand."

Training And Support Are Strong And Comprehensive From The Outset

Like any business, a Young Chefs Academy must have a smoothly operating suite of back-office functions in order to succeed. That's ensured thanks to an ongoing evaluation and monitoring of business needs, says Charles Burleson, director of technology.

"We source and configure the right software for franchise owners to run their business," Charles Burleson says. "That falls into a few major operational categories: business operations, client services, scheduling and sales. We also make sure that those systems tie in easily to marketing, website operations, and other business systems. That way every franchise owner can quickly and easily look over all their operational issues and identify any problems. And if they do have issues, we are here to help them work through those."
