How to Fly the Plane While Still Building It!
with Angela Cote
Are you ready for take-off? Have you hit turbulence? Or are you flying high?
Angela “got her wings” helping grow the family business of M&M Meat Shops to over 470 franchises across Canada. Along her flight path, Angela experienced feeling unstimulated and on auto-pilot to taking control of the flight deck to chart her own course to success.
Angela will inspire you with her flight path from Kelly Kabob to being the only female Franchise Growth Catalyst in Western Canada.
About Angela: Angela grew up in the world of business growth and franchising. Her father, Mac Voisin, is the founder of the successful iconic Canadian franchise M&M Food Market. The family started the business in 1980 and successfully grew the company to over 450 franchised locations across Canada by 2008. Angela was involved in many areas of the business over the years (from “Kelly Kabob” at early Grand Openings, to working in various roles in the corporate head office, then out in the field doing store visits ensuring compliance, training franchisees, creating and delivering workshops for franchisees and employees, and supporting franchisees as a field consultant). In the late ’90’s, She moved to Vancouver to help develop the chain in Western Canada after attaining her honors degree in Business (Wilfrid Laurier University).
In 2000, Angela moved to Victoria to bring the chain to the island as a multi-unit franchisee, opening 3 stores in a year and a half, all exceeding sales projections within their first year. The past 17 years as a franchisee have given her an alternate, invaluable perspective that inspired her to launch a business to help franchisors with growth.
Using her franchisor experience and invaluable franchisee perspective, Angela helps early and established franchisors by providing and helping implement the framework for exponential growth. www.angelacote.com
