Thanksgiving has always been my favorite holiday, for as long as I can remember. I love giving thanks as well as giving back. In fact, many of you may not know that as a company, Big Sky Franchise Team donates a percentage of top-line sales every month to different charities to support local causes.
And in the spirit of Thanksgiving this week, I wanted to interview someone that embodied a great representation of both corporate giving and franchise success. The point is that you can have both. Success in business and success in supporting your community.
Our guest today is Charlie Brown, who grew up poor, opened his first franchise at age 23, and today owns 7 Jersey Mike’s Franchise locations and is the Area Developer for all of Oklahoma. His interview is jammed full of great bits of wisdom and practical advice. So much so I couldn’t fit them all into my 3 key takeaways and win-win!
