Fuddruckers® Awards Caguas, Puerto Rico Fast Casual Restaurant Location with the Company's First Franchise Certified Training Designation

CAGUAS, Puerto Rico - Aug. 8, 2013 // PRNewswire // - Fuddruckers, home of the "World's Greatest Hamburgers", has announced the first recipient of its recently launched Certified Training Designation program. The Texas-born fast casual chain bestowed the honor to its Caguas, Puerto Rico location led by franchisee, Max Olivera, and VP of Operations, Carlos Alvarez, of Puerto Rico-based Caribbean Investment Group, Corp., which operates five restaurants throughout the island in addition to two other locations.
Supported by Fuddruckers' Puerto Rico-based Director of Training, Tammy Vega, and Fuddruckers' Corporate Director of Training, Mike Peay, the Caguas team invested approximately eight months to achieve this goal, which included a focus on general training, audits, testing and proficiencies.

The program was developed to increase staff retention while allowing franchisees and their affiliated restaurants to be more self-sufficient through maintenance of policy, procedures and standards. Not only will this position the businesses to save money, but also create a revenue stream for managers through a training bonus. In the case of Caguas, the management team will be dispatched to support upcoming Fuddruckers openings in the Dominican Republic, building cost efficiency for the franchisee.

According to Peter Tropoli, Chief Operating Officer, "We congratulate the Caguas team and our longtime franchisee, Caribbean Investment Group, Corp., on their passion for Fuddruckers and dedication to pursuing this designation. We are also grateful for our bilingual staff members, who were pivotal in making this such a smooth process for everyone involved. We look forward to welcoming other franchisee groups, who are currently working towards this elite status within Fuddruckers."
