A good model

A recent story inĀ  the News Obsever:

about a local family that operates several Chick-fil-a’s. The important aspect of the story is that the each owner-operator does not own the real estate but leases from Chick-fil-a….and in turn pays the company a $5,000 franchise fee and share of profits and sales.

And most importantly….each owner-operator is at the business on a daily basis….and operates the store within the Chick-fil-a culture….which seems to be a good model to follow.
