Balance of Power

Quick-serve leaders have a lot of their plate, whether it’s finding ways to boost the brand’s growth or looking out for all of the people and operators in their care.

Still, for some CEOs, running the company isn’t the only thing they’re concerned about; they’re also focused on making their own units a success. Often starting as an operator and rising through the ranks, many quick-service executives have an extra stake in their brand by serving as a franchisee.

Costa Vida Going Strong After 10 Years of Business
