Training and Support

The support team at Western Sizzlin will share with you the tools you need to grow your business. Unlike other businesses, we stand behind you long after your grand opening offering formal – and informal - lines of support to keep you on a clear path to success. These lines include:

Franchisees and a number of their employees receive technical training:

  • Our training program is designed to put you on the fast track to success. The intense schedule is crafted to target very specific thorough objectives. Franchisees receive eight weeks of training prior to opening.
  • Our in-depth manuals will prove to be an important reference throughout your business’ growth and cover a full range of topics to assist you in day-to-day operations.
  • Continuing education will be provided through several channels. You will receive periodic newsletters and other mailings. Further training classes and videos are also available to keep you up to date with all the best practices in the industry.

Start-Up Support:

  • The Western Sizzlin team will share demographic research and studies with you to determine compatibility for the proposed site.
  • Western Sizzlin will supply you with the latest prototype plans for the building. Everything has been planned down to the interior design package.
  • Ordering Specifications for the equipment package you’ll need will be given to you (and our vendors will pass along special savings to you as well).

Personal Support:

  • A Franchise Field Consultant is available to guide you throughout the process of opening your own Western Sizzlin, from the restaurant’s inception to your grand opening. You’ll have one point of contact to answer every question and help you strategize opening your own Western Sizzlin or Wood Grill Buffet for success.
  • After you open, your field consultant is accessible from the beginning stages of your franchise and will help get you started. He or she will continue to provide operational evaluations as your business grows.
  • Western Sizzlin support personnel always remain just a phone call or email away to assist you in operations and marketing.
  • Committed to be part of a team.

You’ll also be surrounded by the entire Western Sizzlin franchisee family. Other franchise organizations may try to stand between you and other franchise owners and want to be your only contact. We encourage you to contact any one of our franchise restaurant owners at any time you need to tap into a network of experienced success.
