Only a couple of months after launching Canada’s first ever SaaS digital franchise, our team is happy to report that we have completed two Loop Universities (our unique three-day franchisee training program), added extra Loop University training sessions for the first quarter of 2019, and are in the process of expanding into three new provinces!
As we prepare to launch in Ontario and Atlantic Canada, and explore opportunities in the United States, we thought we would share some of the ways Loop University is different than your usual franchise training program.
We pride ourselves on having a sports team mentality when it comes to our approach to work and our commitment to goals.
“We definitely have a sports team type focus and commitment when it comes to company goals but also when it comes to activities and fun. Competing in foosball, fantasy football, softball, pretty much anything, we are the Wolf Pack, we also look out for each other. Everyone cares,” explains Head of Culture, Paige Roguski.
What do you get when you combine a hustling company with a sports team mentality launching new markets across North America, with their new pumped up franchise owners? Team building!
Loop University has turned into much more than just training. You won’t find GetintheLoop Local owners going through a manual and taking exams. Instead, the owners are immersing themselves in an industry, connecting with their new teammates, and collaborating with GetintheLoop’s leadership and operation teams. It’s a 3-day bonanza featuring keynotes from CEO Matt Crowell, Franchise Advisor Cliff Shillington, and workshops hosted by President Chris Pinkerton, VP Marketing Jason Mann, and Director of Sales and Partner Success Nick Fane. Franchisees work hands-on with their market support team to learn the process we have developed over the past five years in an engaging and exhilarating setting.
“We are all partners in the growth and success of GetintheLoop. This is an exciting journey we are all on, together. It's important to get to know one another professionally and also socially. We have a long and bright future together. “ – Chris Pinkerton
We basically immerse you in a networking bootcamp. Networking is a huge part of building a successful GetintheLoop business and we make this a top priority at Loop University. Team building is much more than just learning together, it's getting to know one another, letting your hair down, going bowling, eating pizza, and having some fun while in beautiful Kelowna.
As we head into 2019 with aggressive expansion plans and Loop Universities scheduled for every month, one thing you can be sure of is a focus on team building, good times, and camaraderie.
