Seasoned TeamLogic IT Franchise Owners Value Mentorship as Growth Tool
Partnering with new franchise operators allows them to demonstrate operational expertise while also learning about new challenges
In 2017, more than two dozen new TeamLogic IT franchise locations opened across the United States and Canada. While many of the new franchise owners had IT expertise, a background in entrepreneurship or some combination of the two, others were branching out on their own for the very first time.
What could have been a scary situation was made much more comfortable by the robust training that takes place at “TeamLogic IT University,” where new franchise owners get schooled in everything from sales and marketing to back-office systems and more. They also benefit, and will always benefit, from a network designed to help every owner succeed.
Passing along systems that work
“Our TeamLogic IT franchise network is made up of owners who have learned a lot about the IT world, as well as about how to own and operate a successful small business,” says Chuck Lennon, Executive Vice President of Business Development. “They are willing, even eager, to engage with new owners and help them with any questions they may have.”
Often those calls turn into one-on-one coaching sessions, which can be enhanced by the corporate team, as well. What that gives new TeamLogic IT franchise owners, Lennon says, is a constant network of support. They also are able to engage in ongoing roundtables, webinars and other supportive environments with their counterparts.
Engaging with different business climates
“Even our most senior franchise owners are always open to new ideas and learning, and that’s why we never ease up on the training opportunities,” Lennon says. “We make sure that every TeamLogic IT franchise owner is able to find a way to get his or her questions answered as quickly as possible, so they can implement the solutions they need to move their business forward.”
That stream of different pathways to solutions is invaluable not just to new owners, but to the entire TeamLogic IT network.
“Mentorship isn’t an idea at TeamLogic IT; it’s a vibrant and viable, ongoing practice,” Lennon says. “Everyone involved benefits, because quite often the students become the teachers.”
