Coolgreens eliminates franchisee royalty fees
Coolgreens, the U.S.-based healthy eatery franchise, is eliminating franchisee royalty fees for the foreseeable future as a way of helping its franchise network navigate through these turbulent times. Typically, these fees would consist of five per cent of a location’s gross sales.
“The restaurant industry is navigating an unprecedented time right now, and it is imperative that our franchisees and communities know we are doing our best to help them however we can,” said Robert Lee, CEO. “We are talking to our franchisees daily, sharing best practices and ideas on how to continue supporting our communities, team members and guests.”
In addition, Coolgreens recently ran its ‘Salads of Hope’ charity initiative, which ensured that for every salad purchased through April 12, the brand would donate a salad to a local hospital in Oklahoma City and Tulsa. So far, Coolgreens has donated more than 1,200 salads to feed front-line workers.
