Our Franchise Training and Support Makes It Easier to Be Successful in the Robust QSR Industry!

Prior experience in the quick-service restaurant (QSR) industry is certainly helpful.  Additionally, our most successful franchisees have previous business ownership or management experience.  That said, experience with do-nuts is not necessary to take advantage of a franchise opportunity with Shipley Do-Nuts! Our comprehensive franchise training and support not only gets you up to speed on everything you need to know to operate your bakery efficiently it also keeps you on track toward growth for the life of your business. Take some time here to find out more about how our commitment to our franchise partners makes the difference.

Hands-On Pre-Opening Training

There’s a lot that goes into owning and operating a Shipley Do-Nuts franchise.  If you’re new to our industry, our pre-opening training is meant to teach you everything you’ll need to know to manage the day-to-day operational aspects of your new business venture.

About a month before your grand opening, you and up to two of your staff members will spend time in one of our certified training stores, where you’ll get hands-on experience in what it takes to be a successful Shipley owner. Our expert instructors will be by your side to teach you all about inventory control, sales and marketing, customer service, staffing, bookkeeping, and much more. After this comprehensive training, you should feel confident about your abilities and ready to start making life delicious in your community!

Serving Your Community

Your pre-opening training will be the foundation upon which to grow as you leverage our time-tested business model to run your franchise. But our help doesn’t stop there! After your doors open and you begin serving up our deliciously sweet do-nuts and kolaches to your community, you can count on ongoing support that’ll keep you ahead of the competition and ready to meet the demands of business ownership. We know the continued success of the Shipley brand name depends upon the success of our franchisees, so we make sure we’re there for you in many important ways, including:

  • Marketing and advertising: our expert marketing team will support you with strategic advertising and local store marketing
  • Operations: you’ll receive periodic information to assist in the operation of your franchise
  • Field support: you’ll enjoy a team of franchise business consultants to help with your business
  • Franchise services: we’re just a phone call or email away for any questions you might have

You can also count on an experienced Shipley team member to work with you for up to five days after your opening to ensure you’re integrating everything you’ve learned and that things are going smoothly.

We know how exciting it is to take advantage of a Shipley Do-Nuts franchise opportunity. We also know that small business ownership has its share of challenges, so we make sure to be there for our franchisees at every turn. With us by your side, you’ll be in business for yourself, never by yourself!
