Our restaurants have a family spirit to them. I know dozens of customers by their first name, I know what food they love. People always feel at ease coming to our restaurant, it feels like home.
Being part of a franchise group provides us with the assurance that we are always supported by the head office. Also, at Valentine we feel like we are part of a family. That is why I chose that type of concept for my own business.
I bought my very first Valentine restaurant at the age of 20. Now, I am the owner of 6 restaurants and I think that this growth is the result of a team effort between the head office and myself. The proximity of the business managers and their capacity of acting quickly and efficiently are distinct elements to the chain.
Along with a complete guide to operations management for franchisees, Valentine offers ongoing support to its members in order to guarantee the success of their restaurant.
Every step of the construction of a new location is overlooked by the head office team. Pretty reassuring, right?
Our operations consultants are very knowledgeable about the restaurant industry. That's why they visit our franchisees and offer guidance, advice and help with operating the business.
On top of the provincial promotional marketing campaigns, Valentine offers guidance to franchisees who wish to make their restaurant shine locally.
From the start of a new franchise, our accounting department supports franchisees with managing their finances until the are fully autonomous running their establishment.
