View Full Version : Operating Partner career...

Operating Partner? Ever heard the term?

I'm a computer guy, and very tired of it. Don't know if it's mid-life crisis, or what...but, I absolutely dread getting up and doing IT work. Now with a new contract, and the new prime micro-managing everything it's even less fun.

Tomorrow I interview for a position as an Operating Partner for a local Burger King. Apparently, a large franchise owner (74 BKs owned) wants an Operating Partner...someone to run it as if they owned it, no investment, no buy-in. Someone to run it, manage the managers, etc.

While I don't have 'Restaurant Management' experience, I've got a bunch of personnel management skills (NCOIC in the Military on 3 occasions and responsible for multi-million $$$ computer systems) as well as my entire life & military career has been in 'Customer service' related jobs.

Anybody have any advice?
