The 2017 RTOA Convention was one to remember!
The 2017 Convention at the Fairmont Kei Lani on Maui was already set to be our best and most well attended ever. Then……just a week before the convention started we received the news that RTFC had been bought by GFG Management, LLC. The big news created even more buzz as additional franchisees rushed to register for the convention. The Convention Committee jumped into action and started working with our new franchisor to coordinate meeting materials and presentations. We were encouraged and excited by how much relevant information Jenn Johnston and her marketing team had already prepared. GFG was shocked to see a convention run by the franchisees that was so well organized and put together.
There was definitely some angst on both sides as we prepared to meet our new franchisor. That tension began to ease as we had candid and open conversations (and a few mai tais) with Chris Dull and the GFG team. GFG Management presented and shared their vision for Round Table Pizza. There was little question from any of the franchisees in attendance that the future will be very bright under the leadership of GFG. The transparency and candor shared with us was refreshing and inspiring. The top priority is to increase franchisee profitability and build our great brand with a new marketing perspective. Hard to argue with that!
