Do their General Managers really have work life balance?

  • One of our General Managers said, "Absolutely, in my last role I found myself always being on call 24/7. To be more specific I took work calls at 3 am and 4 am, calls on days off, and even during vacations. I always no matter what had some foot in the door at work. I didn't always mind this but sometimes it did take its toll. I thought that it was just a part of the job and that being a leader called you to always have yourself available for anything. Starting here at Kilwins the best way to put it was refreshing. I remember coming up to my first days off and not getting a single phone call. I remember being worried that something was wrong because of that. Figuring out this new normal that work was at work and homewas at home was an eye-opening experience and I can't imagine working in an environment without it again.
  • Another General Manager said, "I feel the position is well structured and that the expectations are very clear on what is expected. Compared to my previous company, my work-life balance has improved dramatically. Even since being here and becoming more comfortable in the role and training my team members. It is also so wonderful to know the owners are so supportive of a work-life balance and that it matters to them. Knowing that also removes the guilt of saying it's time to go home when the time comes around. Time management goes hand in hand with work life balance. So being able to really manage your time well will make it easier to not feel overwhelmed or the need to take any work home."
  • Another General Manager said, "I do feel like I have work life balance. Having the same two days off consistently every week is a big part of that. Having that planned on my schedule I feel helps me and my team know my availability."
  • Just a few ways we accomplish work life balance: you're not allowed to have your work email on your phone, you're trained to not answer work calls when they come and you're off, you're trained to train your team in a way that equips them to lead in your absence, you're required to use a communication tool called Slack in place of "texting" so that you can set a notification schedule and not be interrupted with texts

What matters to these people?

Team: We are team members, not employees

Respect: Treat others as you want to be treated

Integrity: We believe character matters, all the time

Hospitality: The way you make people feel is what they will remember more than anything

Excellence in the Ordinary: Do your best every time and be faithful in the little things

Who are these people?

Kilwins Nashville Demonbreun is owned and operated by young entrepreneurs, Landon and Ashley Clark. When Ashley Clark was 22-years old, she was living at home, with her parents and her college degree, working a job she’d had since she was 15. Counting the number of times he’d been to a Kilwins on one hand, her dad made a suggestion out of the blue: “Have you ever thought about owning a Kilwins Franchise?” That was October 2012. Landon and Ashley opened their first Kilwins store in 2013 in Greenville, SC. Fast forward to 2024: Landon and Ashley own and operate five Kilwins stores in SC, NC, GA, and TN - with #6 opening in Nashville Q3 2024. They love building relationships with their team. They teach their team to show up on time, deliver on promises, and be better communicators. They are passionate about inspiring their team members to do the things that inspire them. They’re not done yet, either - they’re currently expanding in Nashville and are looking for leaders!
