(UnhappyFranchisee.com) Franchise owners in the controversial meal preparation segment continue to seek creative ways to build business. According an article in The Capistrano Dispatch, San Juan Capistrano franchise owners of the local Dream Dinners “a lot of school fund-raisers.” Stacy Wagner and Chad Douglass purchased the franchise as a resale last year.
Every month Dream Dinners—a company that provides everything patrons need to assemble dinners to take home and even freeze—offers 17 new menu items complete with instructions and fresh pre-cut ingredients, including beef skewers with sweet garlic mustard glaze, Thai fusion shrimp, sweet cider barbecue chicken, red skin mashed potatoes and cheesecake. Dream Dinners takes orders online, by phone, fax or e-mail, and then customers can come in to pre-prepare either in the morning or at night. Each meal takes about 10 minutes to prepare. “It’s a great way to serve people; it’s time and cost effective for families,” said owner Stacy Wagner.
She and her business partner, Chad Douglass, purchased the three-and-a-half-year-old business about a year ago and do a lot of school fund-raisers where a portion of the proceeds go to the respective school. 31734 Rancho Viejo Road, Suite D, 949.481.5700
