Tired of the East Coast, Benjamin and Julie Woessner of Virginia Beach, VA have decided to relocate to Colorado where their new business venture, of owning a Growler USA franchise is taking them. Ben “got lucky when he found a business involving his love for beer,” says his wife Julie.
Knowing he was interested in owning a restaurant, Ben first inquired to Growler USA through Franchise.com’s web portal on August 9, 2015. He also explored these other opportunities:
Although Growler USA, a craft beer franchise headquartered in Denver, CO, just started franchising in 2014, it now has more than 27 pubs being built across the country. As one of the easier business models to follow, it is perfect for semi-absentee ownership and for those with little or no experience in restaurants or hospitality.
The Woessners’ background is no exception to that rule. Ben is a metrology technician by trade and Julie, an accountant. Previous to their current jobs, Ben served in the Navy and as an aircraft mechanic in the civil service, and Julie enjoyed owning a business in the music industry for 10 years.
After the big move, the Woessners are hoping to open their Growler USA pub in the summer or fall of 2016, once they secure a location in Colorado Springs. Julie says “We hope to be successful enough to open several locations there.”
Julie mentions “the Growler team has been very welcoming and helpful. They consider the franchisees family members and have gone out of their way to answer our questions and accommodate us. Everyone we have met so far has been friendly, easy to work with and are really great people.”
