Doug Barnes and Lyle Cornelius said they knew they had a winner when they started operating their first Nestlé Toll House Café by Chip in the Miracle Mile Shops in Las Vegas, and now they are the first franchisees in the U.S. system to break the $1 million mark in annual revenues, according to a company press release. The figure is roughly double the location's 2012 revenues.
The successful franchisees purchased their café from a previous owner in March 2012 and recently completed a comprehensive remodel to update its look and branding. The café, at 3663 S. Las Vegas Blvd, Suite 96, is one of two Nestlé Toll House Cafés in the city.
"From the very beginning, Lyle and Doug have exhibited a world-class service mentality that extends not only to their guests but to their team as well," said Shawnon Bellah, SVP of Global Operations for Nestlé Toll House Café. "One of the many reasons they've risen to the top is their commitment to hiring and retaining exceptional employees that truly care about providing customer service that's as superb as the treats they sell."
