bluefrog’s franchise owners flock to the brand’s annual convention to learn about leadership, financial management, streamlining operations and more
If you ask bluefrog Plumbing + Drain franchise owners what they like best about the brand, chances are, the annual convention will top the list. Why? Because it’s the perfect opportunity for franchisees to gather and learn about the state of the industry, as well as innovative marketing, operations and technology solutions and much more.
Held on March 9-11 in Las Vegas at Planet Hollywood, the theme for the 2020 convention was “Building Builders!” More than half of the plumbing franchises franchise owners attended the event to not only capitalize on building business success, but also to get updates on new products, attend how-to workshops on key business fundamentals, and recognize the hard work of franchise owners.
“I truly believe that one of the biggest benefits of an annual convention is the collaboration of the Franchise Partners,” says Thomas Dougherty, President of bluefrog Plumbing + Drain. “They learn so much from each other.”
Suffice it to say, the annual convention kicked things up notch by focusing on three core drivers of franchisee success: People, Process, and Profit. The convention’s ultimate goal, according to Dougherty, was to help its franchise partners grow to $5 million in three years per location.
This is why the thriving plumbing franchise held Roundtable Discussions after every session, which were designed to help franchise owners create a “big three focus” for their businesses. These three key takeaways will help drive each franchisee towards achieving the convention’s ultimate goal. Some of the workshops included:
- How To Recruit, Hire, Train, and Lead More Effectively
- Automating Process’: Identifying Delegation Opportunities and More
- Marketing Is A Process, Not A Silver Bullet
- The Stages of Growth: How To Navigate Them & Achieve Your Goals
“No matter what stage of growth your franchise is in, this convention presented multiple solutions and ideas to reach the next level,” says Duane Larkin, President of bluefrog Plumbing + Drain North East Dallas. “Additionally, there were actionable takeaways for each stage centered around marketing, operations and leadership. The best part was celebrating the success of my franchise family and having the ability to build and foster relationships with them!”
