12th Annual Planet Fitness Franchise

Jan was great! Feedback from the event was very positive and she definitely did her homework. Her story was really inspiring with your crowd as well. Overall, she was fantastic!

First, let me say that I so enjoyed meeting Jan at our meeting. She is a truly lovely person, and we were so grateful that she not only spoke on the program, but took the time to mingle with our members during the reception the evening prior to her remarks.

In terms of her remarks, I think she did an absolutely excellent job, discussing her extraordinary and impressive rise to the top of McDonald’s USA and providing valuable and interesting insight into the workings at McDonald’s, issues re product development and marketing, and the role that chicken plays in McDonald’s success during her tenure with the company. Following the meeting, I reviewed our conference evaluations, and she received high marks from our conference audience, which is, of course, of great important to the National Chicken Council. So, she did an A+ job from our point of view, and please extend my personal gratitude to her.
