Recently McAlister’s Deli, a DiscoverLink client, graciously opened the doors of its Franklin, Tenn. location for a photo shoot. For the DiscoverLink content team, this presented an opportunity to capture photos for an upcoming micro-learning program in a contemporary and vibrant fast casual setting.
Shortly before 6 a.m. on the morning of the shoot, Area Director Bob Cassady enthusiastically welcomed DiscoverLink into his spacious suburban restaurant. Over the next four hours, McAlister’s Deli was transformed into a photo studio, complete with green screen, lights, cameras, wardrobe and various actors coming and going. As they followed their normal opening procedures, Bob and his Franklin team kept the coffee and hospitality flowing. DiscoverLink was also welcomed by David Blackburn, Franchise CEO, and Barry Fortner, Franchise Director of Business Development and Supervision.
As 10 a.m. approached and the photo crew finished their final shots, the rest of the DiscoverLink team began breaking down the equipment and cleaning up. And just like that, faster than you could order a large McAlister’s iced tea, all traces of the photo shoot had been removed, and it was time for Bob and his team to begin welcoming their lunch customers.
“There’s no better way to create relevant e-learning courses for our customers than to involve them in the process,” said Josh Lowry, Director of Content Development for DiscoverLink. “We’re so grateful to the McAlister’s team for allowing us to stage the photo shoot in their restaurant and for showing us such great hospitality.”
To celebrate the successful photo shoot, the DiscoverLink crew stayed for lunch and got to experience McAlister’s hospitality first hand.
