In-House Support

Kahala Brands is structured to deliver on our top priority of franchisee support. We have streamlined the process for franchisees by having all of the franchisor services located in our Scottsdale, AZ headquarters with limited use of outside agencies. This alleviates the need for third party vendors who don’t have the knowledge and investment in the brands that Kahala employees do.

Additionally, we achieve cost-savings for our community by bundling “back of the house” functions, where the entire franchise community benefits from shared teams in purchasing, finance, real estate, business training, IT and human resources to capitalize on economies of scale.

Each brand, however, operates independently when it comes to developing, operating and marketing the individual concepts. A brand leader is at the heart of the business and is equipped with a team of passionate sales, marketing and operations talent to support the brand and its franchisees. This type of support is unique in the franchise industry, and we are proud to invest in this structure to keep the brand passion alive.

At Kahala Brands, we offer extensive in-house support to our franchise community. From site selection, design and construction to marketing, public relations and R&D, we provide extensive, hands-on support throughout the entire ownership experience.
