CHARLESTON, SC--(Marketwire - Mar 15, 2012) - SIB Development & Consulting, a company that helps businesses save money on their recurring expenses, today announced it has been named an endorsed partner by the National Franchisee Association (NFA), an organization that represents nearly 5,000 franchised BURGER KING® restaurants in North America. This partnership could mean millions of dollars in savings for BURGER KING® franchisees.
SIB helps restaurants save money by negotiating better contracts for recurring monthly service expenses (phone, Internet, garbage, utilities, hardware and software maintenance contracts, linens/laundry, credit card processing, grease traps, property taxes and others), and by finding and correcting errors and overcharges on past monthly bills. SIB's clients only pay after they have realized actual monthly savings.
"We are always on the lookout for programs that provide real value for our franchisees," said Andrew Myers, CEO of the National Franchisee Association. "By employing experts with extensive experience in each of the fields in which they specialize, SIB is uniquely equipped to find savings in virtually any fixed-cost category. I am thrilled and proud to be able to present a service to our franchisees that I believe has the potential of putting millions of dollars back into their pockets at a time when every dollar counts."
"We know that the NFA does not offer its endorsements lightly," said Dan Schneider, Founder of SIB Development & Consulting. "We are honored to have been selected and look forward to helping BURGER KING® franchisees across North America save money."
Schneider says restaurant owners -- especially multi-unit operations -- do not have the time or in-house expertise to find billing errors and to understand the best prices and plans available for their monthly services. "Not only can we help find and correct complex billing errors, we can benchmark what businesses are paying with what we know are the best available rates and plans on the market. We have a 98% success rate."
