Run the Business; Don’t Let It Run You
Everyone talks about support, but we deliver. You are more than a franchisee, you are a member of the Arooga’s Nation, and we treat our countrymen with support systems that are second to none. Our goal is to support your restaurant with the focus and attention that we devote to our own corporate locations, with a relentless attention to detail and the things that separate an average restaurant from one that excels.
But that is only beginning; we will provide you with ongoing support that includes: confidential operations manual documenting Arooga’s operational procedures, national purchasing programs, available in-service training or retraining. We are also always working on new proprietary products that will separate us from the competition. You can count on us to pursue green alternative products that are economical and environmentally sound as well.
The backbone of our support is an integrated online system that allows owners and managers to be only a click away from key financial information related to their business. All accounting functions are integrated including vendor invoices, inventory, payroll, point of sale, receivables and payables. This is also the primary tool that we use to support your business by staying on top of these critical restaurant performance metrics:
- Profit and loss reports
- Food and labor costs reporting and analysis
- Product mix and menu engineering
Our support team earned their stripes by overseeing our corporate locations and by being an additional set of eyes on your business, and we can provide a detailed analysis whether you are the location general manager or the absentee owner. You’ll have the continued guidance of your Arooga’s Franchise Business Advisor and help or advice is only a phone call away.
