Workforce Success Story Submitted By:
Northeast Michigan Consortium Michigan Works!

Rally's Franchise

Workforce Challenge

Thomas started in the family dining business, operating the Big Boy in West Branch. He was looking to expand in another dining business. He decided to invest in a Rally's franchise in Gaylord. Now, he needed to find employees.

Workforce Solution

Thomas worked with Business Services Professional Kathy to advertise for candidates on PMTC, and they also utilized one of the Michigan Works! rooms for interviewing. Kathy also discussed other programs available to employers.

Outcomes & Benefits

Thomas now operates a Big Boy that employs 60 people in West Branch and a Rally’s that employs 20 people in Gaylord. With his expansion plans, he hopes to employ 10 more part-time staff at Rally's. It is his hope that as Rally’s becomes more known in the area, he’ll soon need to employ even more people. He says, “Michigan Works! has been a valuable resource for when we were hiring for Gaylord. The staff was very helpful and I would recommend the Gaylord Michigan Works! to any business.”
