    Course Description

    In the franchise industry, customers form perceptions of brands through interactions with franchisees and head office communications. Franchise customers like conformity and should always receive integrated messages.

    Customers become alarmed and “vote with their feet” when messages between head office and franchises are not congruent. Within the franchise industry, excellent customer service is a competitive advantage.

    Here is a routine bad experience:

    Brand Y is on sale and the advertisement urges customers to buy Brand Y today. When the customer visits a franchise store to purchase Brand Y then they are informed it is not in store because “head office always stuffs up by advertising merchandise that is out of stock”.

    Goodbye sale Goodbye loyalty & Goodbye branding. Make no mistake, the franchisee venting has damaged the brand for all. Franchisees sometimes choose to cover themselves by blaming Head Office and it is a lose/lose/lose strategy.
