Who says hard work doesn’t pay off?
For Samira Christopher, hard work is exactly how she landed her dream job with Little Caesars. Though she’s now a multi-unit franchisee with the global brand, Samira’s start with the company actually began 25 years earlier.
First working as a co-manager with Little Caesars corporate locations, Samira eventually worked her way up to the position of Area Supervisor. It wasn’t long before she was working with one of the franchises largest franchisees in Ontario. It’s here where she realized her passion for small business ownership.
So, when Samira finally made the decision to open her own franchise, she didn’t have to think twice about where she wanted to invest.
“After being a part of this brand for 25 years in various roles, I really felt this was the best place for me,” Samira says. “I did research other franchises but because I love the Little Caesars brand I couldn’t see myself anywhere else!”
For Samira, what sets Little Caesars apart from the competition goes well beyond the feeling that joining the team is like joining a family.
“I love that all our products are freshly made in-store, every day,” she says. “I truly believe in what we are selling, which as a mother of two, gives me peace of mind because I know exactly what I am putting in their mouths!”
A proud franchisee, Samira is giving life as a small business owner her all. She currently operates four Little Caesars locations in Brampton, Hamilton, and Brantford, Ontario, and plans to open another Hamilton location this spring.
With four, soon-to-be five, locations, you can bet Samira has some practical advice for prospective franchisees who want to find success in the industry.
“First, you need to be prepared to work hard,” she says. “It’s important to stay present in your business and know your finances. But most importantly, you always have to make it fun for your team. The more fun they have, the harder they will work to make it a success!”
