  • How to become an expert in all the games and merch
  • How to manage events and engage with your local community
  • Marketing and promoting your store
  • Product buying and merchandising
  • How to recruit and manage your team
  • How to use our accounts and POS systems
  • Menu creation and food preparation
We will also ensure that you have access to any further training and professional development that becomes available during our partnership, and you will also be able to draw on an extensive catalogue of cloud-based training videos whenever you need them.

These practical elements are essential, of course, but you will also receive a thorough grounding in our values and how important they are to your new business. Our rapport with our customers, how we connect with them, and the passion we bring to our business are all a huge part of why we are so successful, and we want to make sure we impart this to you as well.
