Sunrise, FL (PRWEB) April 6, 2007
Learn.com®, the leader in on-demand workforce development and productivity, announced today that Quiznos, one of the nation's fastest-growing quick service restaurant (QSR) chains and pioneer of the toasted sandwich, has deployed the LearnCenter platform, a Talent Management Suite to power e-learning, in-store training, and classroom based training to support franchise owners. Quiznos was recently ranked by Nation's Restaurant News as the number one national chain of restaurants in terms of growth. A new case study by Bersin & Associates called Blended Learning in a Retail Environment, dives into the success of Quiznos University. Click here to read the complete case study.
"Making sure that franchise owners are methodically trained is central to our mission and strategy, and sets us apart from other QSR chains. Our training programs are designed to enable our franchise owners to hit the ground running and achieve high rates of success in everything from the quality of the customer experience, to the quality of the food, to their ability to make a profit," said the Chancellor of Quiznos University.
According to the report, "To address the relative inexperience of its franchise owners, Quiznos offers a rigorous and comprehensive training program that aims to thoroughly prepare and certify owners and store managers to operate a restaurant safely and profitably. The concept is to build leadership at the store level to create successful franchises that, in turn, promote the growth and expansion of the entire chain."
"Learning content covers every aspect of running a Quiznos store - from preparing food to generating profits. Broad topic areas include financials, operations, food safety and sanitation, marketing, ordering, and hiring and scheduling employees. To advance from one program to the next and ultimately earn certification, franchise owners and store managers must pass a series of qualifying examinations."
"Quiznos University is currently delivering one of the most innovative and comprehensive learning programs found in the retail industry. It has developed a blended curriculum of e-learning, hands-on regional training, and headquarters classroom instruction, which supports the reinforcement of key concepts via spiral learning. "
