Edible® Franchising – Love at Work and Play
Edible® Franchising - Love at Work and Play
At Edible®, we want our franchisees to feel like family – but what if they already are? Many of our franchisees are couples themselves, showcasing how Edible® owners can seamlessly combine personal and professional lives.
Eddie and Esther Melgar, who operate the Edible® store in Vacaville, California, dished the sweetness behind operating a business alongside your spouse.
Experienced entrepreneurs themselves, the Melgar’s previously owned and operated 30 Sprint wireless stores and now have a desire for a fresh venture, which led them to Edible®.
“Edible is just so refreshing,” Eddie Melgar said. “We bring happiness to people.”
And this couple has a sweet love story of their own. After meeting at just 15 years old, they will be married 24 years this year. What’s their secret to working together so fruitfully?
“You can’t be each other’s boss,” Esther pointed out, advising, “share the same goal and just have fun.”
The Melgar’s Edible® location is a family affair as their two sons oversee the store’s management. Their eldest son, a student at Sacramento State, will help with employee development. The youngest, a high school student, will assist with employee training.
Love is in the air with our franchisee couples and Valentine’s Day sales. We just celebrated the strongest Valentine’s Day in our company’s history, with a 32% sales increase from last year, thanks to our robust delivery model and ability to serve most U.S. households within an hour.
