A franchisee should have a successful professional/business track record, not necessarily in the food business; and must have a strong will to succeed.
Hands-on management is preferred, though not a requirement. Local residents are preferred for locations outside Metro Manila. A strong background in people management is important.
To ensure every franchisee’s success, a CABALEN Franchise store shall receive the following support:
Franchisee can deploy key positions and will be trained under a Cabalen facility for sixty (60) to ninety (90) days depending on the position. Cabalen will assign an opening team to train and assist the franchise outlet’ s employees in the opening of the restaurant.
To ensure financial profitability and the franchise store’s compliance with set standards, processes and procedures, our audit team frequently conducts unannounced audits. This covers several aspects of operations like inventory management system, floor control compliance, facility maintenance, food safety practices, kitchen operations, etc. We also have quarterly business performance review presided by our Management Team. We will also guide the franchise management team on their financial performance.
Our Marketing and Advertising team continuously develops national and local store promotions, partnerships, and co-branding activities to support the franchise outlet. Our team will assist the franchise store in establishing market demographics and information dissemination tools during and after opening.
