Franchisee of the Ponderosa Family Fare
Fayetteville, NC

"Family Fare is a company where you have the freedom to express new ideas to help grow your business and will be supported by the Franchisor. I love being a part of this organization where I feel I make a difference. I enjoy a leadership role on our Franchisee Advisory Board where I feel that I am a part of a team striving to do the best for my corporation as well as the customers. I need flexibility in my life and I get that with running my own business. This is my home away from home. The name and tagline says it all, Family Fare “Helping You Get There.”

Franchisee of the Butner Family Fare
Butner, NC

“Family Fare has a unique support system that stays with you throughout your partnership. It’s called the Family Fare Service, Collaboration and Support Center. This is a team of support specialists that provide guidance and counsel you with anything that may arise in your business. People ask me “what do you like most about your job?” I like the fact that it’s not a job! It is an opportunity to interact with my employees and make sure they are executing well. Once that is accomplished, I know my customers have become guest within my Family Fare Franchise store.”

7 Years of Service at Family Fare
Franchisee of the Grove Park Family Fare
Burlington, NC

"I had the exceptional advantage to witness firsthand how this company operated from within. Both of my sisters were Franchisees before me and introduced me to the brand. Family Fare displayed a stable environment that with hard work and determination I too could be successful. The structure in the company was developed so I would have access to a support system that would further give me the confidence I need to operate a profitable franchise. From the Business Consultant to the Service Collaboration & Support Center, the path was laid out to lead to success. All I needed to do was to stay within the protocols of the system."

“Being a Family Fare Franchisee is an opportunity to serve our community with honesty, respect and efficiency. We are on a constant drive to improve and always ask what we can do to raise awareness and improve customer service. We enjoy the challenge of using our two language skills to serve our customers and to increase the customer base with Hispanic people in our community. Family Fare works because of the special relationship that helps us become better business people. We would certainly recommend this type of opportunity to anyone willing to excel.”

10 Years of Service at Family Fare
Franchisee of the Plaza Family Fare
Dunn, NC

“In 2002 I started working for an existing Family Fare entrepreneur-partner in Weldon, North Carolina, near my hometown. In 2009, I was given the opportunity to run my own store in Dunn, NC. Dunn is many miles from my home. I moved alone; as a single young lady, setting off for success to open my own business with Family Fare. It was in Dunn, in my store, no less, that I met the love of my life in 2010. We were married in 2014. In September of 2015, we welcomed a new baby boy to our family. Having a Franchise through Family Fare is having a business partner who cares about my success. I came into a well-established store that was already doing great business. Family Fare gives you all the tools and support that you need to have a successful business”

Durham, NC

"I came to work with Family Fare for the opportunity to work with an organization that is a leader in the convenience store industry. I love the interaction and relationships that I have with my customers, my employees, and Family Fare’s management and support staff. As a member of the Franchise Advisory Board, I feel I am able to contribute in many different ways. The Franchisees are able to get input from our perspective in regard to some of our challenges as a group. Having worked with one of the top household consumer businesses in the world, where second place was not an option, I know Family Fare will never accept second best. I joined Family Fare to help turn dreams into reality."
