From a successful corporate job to launching their first small business, Lauren Clowdus shares the story of how she and her husband started a restaurant franchise business. Lauren shares how they selected the franchise, the challenges they have faced – including working with her spouse – and their plans for growth. She also shares the challenges they have experienced with hiring and retaining employees, and how they use a third-party HR company to help them.
Lauren Clowdus, along with her husband Bryan, are the owners of a franchise restaurant business located in Coppell, Texas – a suburb of the Dallas/Ft. Worth area. They opened their first location in 2015, and are planning to open another restaurant location soon. This was Lauren’s and Bryan’s first venture into business ownership. Henry Lopez, host of The How of Business podcast, is a frequent customer of their restaurant, Little Greek Fresh Grill.
