Small Business Support with OpenWorks

When you are a franchisee, you’re a small business owner. You can run your business, call the shots, make your own schedule, hire a team and make their schedules, provide benefits, mentor and coach…. wait a minute.

This is beginning to sound like a lot. And it is.

As a business owner, you don’t just work and then go home and kick your feet up. It means you do the actual work that your business provides, but then you also must figure out and provide human resources support like hiring and training, as well as ordering supplies.

But, when you’re a small business owner and franchisee with OpenWorks, you’re not alone.

We provide many resources for all business-running aspects and teach you how to utilize them!

Here are 13 vendor partners that OpenWorks provides to its franchisees and why a small business owner would want to use them.
