March 03, 2014 // Franchising.com // Beef Jerky Outlet Franchise welcomes prospective new franchisees to a Discovery Day Open House on Friday, March 7 in Kodak, Tennessee. Discovery Day will be an opportunity to learn firsthand about Beef Jerky Outlet Franchise ownership opportunities. Discovery Days are regularly scheduled events held by the Beef Jerky Outlet, a unique national franchise specializing in all kinds of beef jerky from original to blazing hot and over 200 varieties and sizes. The previous Discovery Day was held in October 2014 with great success.
Discovery Day will start out with breakfast in Kodak, Tennessee followed by a visit to the Beef Jerky Outlet retail store. The Kodak store is located in a busy retail shopping district just off of I-40 that features a Bass Pro Shop and other quality retailers. The address is 3609 Outdoor Sportsmans Place, Suite 3. Scott Parker, Beef Jerky Outlet Franchise President, says that Discovery Day will be an introduction to the franchise concept. "The attendees will be able to learn about franchise basics like location, real estate and financing options," said Scott. "We are planning a tour of one of our jerky manufacturing plants prior to beginning franchisee orientation," said Scott.
Prospective franchisees will have the opportunity to discuss their options with Mick Riddiough and Allen Hugo of the Riddiough Group. Mick and Allen are professional consultants with many years of experience in the franchise industry. "We see our role as smoothing the out the franchise ownership process. It is important to meet people face-to-face and go over the franchise qualification program. We will have an informal question and answer session that is mainly about providing information and getting acquainted," said Mick.
Discovery Day attendees will have the opportunity to meet Scott Parker and review key objectives of the Beef Jerky Outlet Franchise. They will also gain insights into store operations at a selected area outlet store. Beef Jerky Outlet Franchise has four locations near or on the parkway leading to the Smoky Mountains.

Paul Lyons, Beef Jerky Outlet COO, will participate in the training and orientation sessions. "This Discovery Day will be a little different. We will be having actual on-site training sessions for new franchise owners who will be opening stores within the next month," said Paul. "We are very proud of the quality of our training program. New prospects will have a firsthand view of franchise operations and training," adds Paul.
