Spotlight on Mentorship: Cheese Curds’ Melinda Lee and SRS Canada’s Andrew Diveky

As CFO of Cheese Curds Gourmet Burgers + Poutine, Melinda Lee was looking for strategies to expand the franchise beyond its home market of Nova Scotia. Operating on a limited advertising budget and wanting to avoid the mistake of expanding too quickly, she turned to CFA’s Zor-2-Zor: Franchise Coach in Your Corner program for help.

Zor-2-Zor Success Story: The Ten Spot

"Since starting up the franchising arm of the business, I've realized that there are many things I don’t know I don’t know. To be able to get advice and guidance from more established franchisors that have learned from their own hindsight is invaluable." - Kristen Wood, CEO & Creator, The Ten Spot
