Arooga's utilizes blended learning to train franchisees
Saline, Mich., August 24, 2015 - Arooga's Grille House & Sports Bar is an innovative, casual family dining restaurant and bar with a sports and entertainment focus. Arooga's, headquartered in Harrisburg, PA., has been franchising since 2013 with 41 current franchised outlets. In an effort to reduce their overall carbon footprint, Arooga's utilizes the latest earth conscious resources in the hospitality industry. As a result, all of their locations have been certified by the Green Restaurant Association. With their promise of "fresh, never frozen" Kobe burgers and fresh salads made from local produce, Arooga's menu is high in quality and fresh ingredients.
How does Arooga's train its franchisees?
Arooga University provides a comprehensive 5 week training program for franchisees and their management team. Training is conducted in Pennsylvania at their corporate center and provides both classroom and on location training. Gary Huether, Jr., co-founder and president of Arooga's explains, "We cover the whole spectrum with online training, classroom training and video training. Video training is our newest addition. We truly believe that's the newest technology wave for training". Blended learning has shown proven success for Arooga's franchise locations, with an emphasis on video training. Huether continues, "We're seeing that with the millennial generation, not for just training franchisees but their employees as well, video is a very effective tool".
Arooga's also enlists the help of real estate location services to find the perfect location and negotiate deal terms at no additional cost to their franchisees. Once location is set and staff is put in place, Arooga's franchise training team travels to the franchisee and assists in on site training of the complete staff prior to the opening of the new Arooga's restaurant.
Arooga's was selected as "America's Next Top Restaurant Franchise" and is a five time winner at the National Buffalo Wing Festival. With an investment range between $600,000-1,785,000 and an Average Unit Volume of $2,790,000 it's simple why Arooga's innovative restaurant concept is becoming more appealing in the eyes of potential buyers.
