Support for Success
To maintain the highest degree of quality and service possible, as a Vincent’s location you will be required to operate the Restaurant in strict conformity with the methods, standards and specifications that we prescribe. Not only will this ensure that the Vincent’s valuable brand is maintained, but will also ensure that your business has the absolute best start and ongoing opportunity for success.
As a Vincent’s franchise operator, you will have access to every resource needed to start and grow a highly successful restaurant business. We will support you at every step, from selecting the ideal site for your business to consulting regarding the purchasing of the supplies that you need.
We provide in-depth site criteria in our Pre-Opening Manual (made available to Franchise Operators). It is your responsibility to select a location, and our responsibility to approve it before you execute a lease. You will have access to Sabre Realty to support and aid you in your search.
The licensing that you require will depend upon city and state regulations of your site. You will most likely need to obtain a board of health permit for the county, and perhaps for the local municipality.
We request you have a ServSafe® certificate and will provide you with the information to obtain it.
Food and Packaging Resources
Both to support your ease of operations and to maintain our consistency and quality, we select the food and packaging vendors for all Vincent’s locations. We will provide you with the list of our approved vendors with contact information to make your ordering as easy as possible, as well as allowing you to leverage the power of our collective high-volume purchasing.
As a Franchise Operator you will have access to Restaurant 365 Software and accounting methods. You will be required to purchase or lease the point of sale system, computer system, accounting system and software that we designate.
We will provide you with complete, detailed operating manuals, handbooks and materials supported by proven systems for BOH/FOH, and will provide you with a 60-day training period at our Carle Place, NY location. You will have every procedure and resource needed for yourself and your staff.
Your initial training will include up to seven people, including you and your General Manager. If you require additional training by our team for new or replacement employees during the term of your Franchise Agreement, you will be required to pay our training fee as well as the trainee’s expenses for travel, lodging, meals and wages.
We will provide you with our annual marketing calendar, which includes holidays to include for your location, special events and occasions, etc. We provide social media support, as well as think tank and troubleshooting of any specific needs that arise for your specific and unique location.
You will be required to conduct a Grand Opening Advertising campaign based upon our requirements, including a spend of at least $20,000. If you prefer, that budget can be provided to us to conduct the program for you on your behalf. If we collect these funds for the campaign, they are non-refundable.
