Meet New Brewpub Franchise Owners: Megan and Garrett Rose!
This couple is passionate about staking their claim in the craft beer industry, but don’t be fooled: This couple isn’t new to the hustle and bustle of restaurant and brewery life. Megan has been working in the bar industry for the last 6 years. Outside of work, she’s a stay-at-home mom. Garrett has been at an employee-owned equipment rental company for the last 12 years, and both of them were ready for a new adventure, so they came to Voodoo Brewing, and we couldn’t be more excited.
Let’s take a closer look at this couple and see why they chose to open their very own Voodoo brewery franchise location.
Who are Megan and Garrett?
Megan and Garrett are a happy and inspiring couple located in Boise, Idaho. They spend most of their time camping and traveling. Whenever they get an opportunity to go to a new location, they love eating and drinking at new places. Every time they explore somewhere new, they make sure to find a place they can eat, drink, and enjoy each other’s company. These are the moments that matter most to us, and we love seeing Megan and Garrett gravitate toward these moments together.
When Megan and Garrett aren’t traveling the world, you can find Megan watching her favorite reality shows and Garrett watching sports.
Outside of their hobbies and interests, they are both driven individuals who want to do everything they can to succeed. During our interview with them, they shared with us that “Our drive to make our lives better by working hard and going and getting what we want.”
How great is that?
The team at Voodoo Brewing Co. hopes to guide them closer to their goals and turn their dreams into a reality.
Choosing Voodoo Brewing Co. Franchise
Megan and Garett set out with a mission: to start their own franchise together. They aren’t the type of people to just talk to talk… they walk the walk! A quick Google search, and a few minutes later, they found Voodoo Brewing under “best franchises to start.”
What attracted them to the opportunity was the culture and the vibe that we’ve spent the last 17 years shaping and creating. “As a couple who love a good drink, it was an easy choice and we felt like the culture was a fit right away,” they said during an interview with our Voodoo team. I mean, can you blame them? The non-corporate vibe and laidback, easy-going mentality are what we’re all about! And we only hope to attract more couples and entrepreneurs like Megan and Garrett in the future.
What we love about Megan and Garrett is they were able to see that Voodoo brewing wasn’t just your average, conventional bar or pub. Our anti-franchise state of mind stood out to them and helped them find a home with Voodoo. “It’s not a cookie-cutter franchise with lots of corporate oversight. They give you the broad idea but let you execute how you see fit.”
Experiencing Discovery Day
We got to meet Megan and Garrett at Discovery Day. During this experience, they got to put faces to names and sample our delicious Voodoo brewpub menu. (and drink our delicious beer, of course!)
They shared with us their “a-ha” moment when they knew Voodoo was the right choice. “It was actually at a bar in Denver. We were having a blast when we knew we wanted to do something similar. After Discovery Day, we knew for sure Voodoo was what we wanted.” That’s also when we knew they would be the perfect fit for our franchise.
Megan and Garrett can’t wait to open their first beer franchise location.
At the end of our interview, we asked them what their advice was to prospective franchise owners. They kept it simple (just how we like it!) and said, go to Discover Day. We couldn’t agree more. The connections you make through the Discovery Day experience will give you the confidence to open up your first franchise and set yourself up for success.
Take the Plunge, Start Your Own Beer Franchise
If you’re looking for a sign to start your own franchise, Megan and Garrett might be it! They are an inspiration to every couple and individual out there looking to fulfill their dreams of becoming an entrepreneur and opening their own franchise.
With Voodoo craft brewing, it’s as easy as it sounds. We’re here to help you every step of the way because we know how nerve-racking it can be to take the plunge and open up your first franchise location. (We started as a single brewery in Meadville, PA back in 2005!)
At that moment, we never knew we would grow into the craft beer franchise we are today, and we want to share that feeling and experience with you, too.
