The Franchise Growth Catalyst

Angela Cote Podcast

Hi, I’m Angela Coté.  The content of this podcast is intended to educate and inspire franchisors looking to grow (who isn’t??).  I share my insights from having helped grow the franchise company my family founded, M&M Food Market, to almost 500 locations.  What sets me apart is my F3 approach, which incorporates my:

*  Background on the FRANCHISOR side of the relationship

*  Time in the FIELD supporting franchisees

*  Perspective as a multi-unit FRANCHISEE (Get it, 3 F’s 🙂)

The content ranges from how to find franchisees to how to optimize support systems to foster a culture of performance and profitability in your franchisees.  Periodically I will invite select guests to join me and share real life stories and examples of the topics I am covering. 

Now crank up your speakers, hit the play button, and GO BE AWESOME!



Episode 3

Today’s Guests: Candace and Dave Combs

Hey there – Angela Coté here!  And this is Episode #3 of the Franchise Growth Catalyst podcast!

I often find myself trying to explain to people the common challenges of franchising a business.  For this episode I couldn’t resist inviting a dynamic and authentic brother-sister duo, Candace and Dave Combs, to join me in sharing the challenges and myths they faced in the early stages of franchising their California based spa business.  For anyone thinking that franchising a business is pretty straightforward and something you just go do, this is a must-listen!
