There is a fine balance between growing your business and looking after your existing customers. Ruthie Burd found this out when her business started to burst at the seams. She believed that an individually owned network of Lunch Lady kitchens would result in delivering a more personal service to her customers, and decided to franchise her concept and share it with others. For The Lunch Lady, one of the most exciting things about franchising has been the wonderful contribution new franchisees and support staff have made to the organization. Everyone adds their own special ingredient to the company, and as a result, the service we provide keeps getting better and better.
