What was the most difficult challenge of 2014, and what did you learn from it?Keeping the lead funnel full for selling new franchises.

Where do you see your company in five years? Crossing the 500-store mark and well on our way to seeing our longer-term goal of over 1,000 stores across America coming into view.
