Our Team - Our Approach
At Bin There Dump That we have carefully assembled a team of franchise professionals that intentionally created a "franchisee centric culture". No doubt you've walked into an office or company where the air was charged with negative or positive energy. People either love to be at work or they are just putting in time. Creating a positive culture and atmosphere is a function of leadership, a commitment to values and to excellence.
Each person on our leadership team has or is running a franchise business. This helps us to understand how a franchisee / franchisor relation works best - partners in success. We learned from our own personal experience what it takes to do the research about becoming a franchisee, making the decision, signing the agreement, completing training and finally running a successful franchise. You could say we've been there and done that!
As you conduct your research and investigation please ask questions to our existing franchise operators about this "franchisee centric culture".
- Do the leadership and support team at BTDT walk the walk?
- Do the procedures and policies demonstrate that they get it?
- When an issue arises does BTDT do the next right thing?
Becoming a happy franchise usually comes down to the bottom-line; if you're making money you'll be happy. We urge you to take a deep dive. A motto we've embraced and ask you to follow is -
Take Your Assumptions, Turn Them into Questions and You Will Find the Truth
