When you walk in and ask for a Whopper® and a Coca-Cola at Burger King in Oslo, it takes less than 90 seconds for Marit to take your order, serve you with a smile, and clear the payment. No wonder it’s called fast food.
Marit is employed on a part-time contract. And so is her colleague working the grill. Their shift manager Tove is on a full-time contract, as is the restaurant manager Per.
This particular restaurant is owned by King Food AS who holds the master franchise from Burger King. Other restaurants are owned by local franchise takers — all governed by franchise agreements.
The Whopper® burger and its siblings are made of high-quality Norwegian beef and ten other carefully selected ingredients — all procured on the basis of contracts with 15 suppliers.
Fresh ingredients are paramount, and a local distribution company secures regular deliveries — based on a contract.
During daytime the restaurant is well visited, and at night it is protected by Securitas — based on a contract. In early morning it is cleaned by a local cleaning company — based on a contract. The coolers and drinks dispensers are serviced by Coca-Cola — based on a contract.
Add to that the lease for the restaurant itself.
Plus the contracts for the payment terminals, the electricity, the phone, the free Wi-Fi and more.
In fact it takes more than 100 contracts and agreements to serve a juicy Whopper® in 90 seconds. 100 contracts and agreements that must be negotiated, filed, monitored, and renegotiated in due time.
That’s why Umoe Restaurants — the company behind strong brands like Burger King, Starbucks, Peppes Pizza, and TGI Fridays — have turned to Next® Contracts — contracts and agreements without the hassle.
Umoe Restaurants AS is Scandinavia’s leading restaurant company with almost 400 restaurants and cafes. Umoe Restaurants has an expected annual sales of NOK 4 billion (430 million euro) and 9000 employees (incl. franchisee and commission) divided between well known brands as Peppes Pizza AS, TGI Fridays, Burger King and Blender AS, a provider of food and drink concepts for shopping centres and airports.
