In her role, Branham will advance the boutique brand’s franchise network.
9Round Franchising LLC, the franchisor of almost 750 9Round locations in 19 countries and 41 states, has announced that Janice Branham will assume the role of vice president of operations. In this position, she will advance the support programs and tools behind the growing organization.
“Janice brings years of franchise experience to the table that will help ensure the future growth of 9Round,” said Shannon Hudson, founder and CEO of 9Round Franchising. “As the brand weathers the effects of the pandemic, we have not had to permanently let go of a single person at our corporate office, but instead have hired Janice to help support the franchise network now and on the road ahead. Now is not the time to shrink an organization, but instead to fight forward and prepare to come out of the pandemic stronger than ever.”
Before joining 9Round, Brahmam worked for several household franchise brands including Pizza Hut, Quizno’s, and Teriyaki Madness. In these organizations, she designed and delivered operations and franchisee support programs and tools, as well as developing classroom and online training programs.
“This is an exciting time to join 9Round and build on the incredible track record and solid foundation that Shannon, Heather, and the team have started,” said Branam. “Franchising at its core is about support, and now more than ever with the effects of the pandemic, we are focusing on helping franchisees run healthy, profitable businesses to benefit them, their families, and their communities.”
