Allen Dikker, opened his first Potatopia in 2011 and now plans to open 15 restaurant locations by the end of 2015. His goal was to create a unique brand similar to successful fast-casual brands, such as Starbucks, Chipotle and Shake Shack, while offering franchisees the opportunity for success.
His advice to others who want to own their own franchise: Make sure you have a clear vision for what you want to achieve, and do not steer away from it. The great thing about owning a franchise is that they’ve done most of the hard work for you already. All you have to do is follow the systems they have laid out for you.
