· Create a "dual-milestone and dual-channel" store management training mode


Provide franchisees with a complete training and empowerment service from the early stages of cooperation until steady operation, forming a dual-milestone and dual-channel training mode.

Covering the two important training milestones of the new franchise learning period and renewal strengthening period, we provide centralized training for the standardized operation process and skills at the early stage of franchise. In view of the ever-changing and improving industry standards and trends in the business process, intensive training aiming to improve profitability is provided when the franchise is renewed.

The 1500-square-meter offline training and practical operation base in headquarters and online learning through apps or desktop provide franchisees with a dual-channel efficient learning path.

· Create a comprehensive modular training series


Unlike regular training courses in the market, Zhangliang Malatang Training Center has a deep understanding of the core pain points and demand points of franchisees' operation, draws on the business wisdom of thousands of stores for many years, and provides franchisees with three major course modules including standard operation, profitability growth, and food safety, covering a series of comprehensive training for store operation.

· Provide long-term one-to-one training service


According to different stages in a store operation, we provide specialized and targeted small-scale training sessions. A summary of the branch's needs will be needed as well to allow the headquarters understand franchisee’s needs and present customized improvement courses that are highly adapted to special needs.

Through Xiaoliang Technical Support, an online service platform, we provide quick response for difficult problems in daily operation and long-term follow-up assistance and guidance for store operation, and fuel the entrepreneurial dreams of franchisees and partners.
