IS FARM STORES RIGHT FOR YOU?
What does it mean to be the perfect “fit” for a Farm Stores franchise? A desire to bring good, old-fashioned customer service to your community is a great place to start.
Within the Farm Stores family, honesty and integrity are the foundations and the mission. Although franchisees operate their locations independently, we like to think of ourselves as one big team. We bounce ideas off of each other, and share with one another what works well and what works even better.
Not only do we treat our franchisees like family, we believe it’s important to treat our employees and our customers the same way. Professional excellence is at the heart of what we do – from the quality products we buy, to the successful marketing strategies we share, to the customer service best practices we employ.
Honesty, integrity, and genuine customer service are the first qualifications. Here are some more qualities we look for:
