BFS locations in the central and southern parts of our Alabama market are anticipated to open at the regularly scheduled time. Please check with your Zone Business Coach for specific details.
Training Center support staff are anticipated to be on site and available by 10:00 A.M.
Due to the winter weather rolling through Alabama today, we are closing operations of all units east of Vance, and north of Childersburg at 2:00 P.M. today. The training center will also be closing at this time. We expect to be back in operation at the Training Center by 8:00 A.M. tomorrow, and resume normal restaurant operations by 10:30 tomorrow.

a. Minimize Driving
b. Allow our Managers to be at their Units ready to serve our Guests
2. SignDancing is cancelled through Wednesday & will re-start Thursday
3. ZBC’s will be responsible for Gathering & forwarding Paperwork to the TC
The ARL meeting scheduled for today at 11:30 has been canceled. The next ARL meeting is scheduled for Tuesday 02/04/14 at 12:15 P.M. @ the TC. We will have our normal RM meeting Tuesday at 10:00 for Little Caesars, and Dunkin’ Donuts at 3:00 P.M.
Updates will be added as information becomes available:
8:08 A.M.: All BFS restaurant operations in both Little Caesars and Dunkin’ Donuts are on a delayed opening schedule of 12:00 noon local time for Alabama, Georgia, and Louisiana. As the noon hour approaches, we will assess the weather conditions and update this site with our opening plans.
7:42 A.M.: Hoover Training Center personnel are on a delayed start. The office will not be open or staffed this morning. Support staff department leaders are available by phone. If conditions permit, the office will open later today, and notice will be posted here.
UPDATED 12:03 P.M. BFS operations in Georgia will be closing, effective now.
At 11:05 A.M. this morning, Vice President of Operations Matthew Arias announced that all BFS operations in Alabama, including Little Caesars and Dunkin’ Donuts are closing for the remainder of the day. This action is taken due to the unexpected severity of the winter storm now hitting the southeastern portion of The United States. This closure is made with the safety of our employees in mind. We will re-open all Alabama operations tomorrow morning at the normal time. We apologize to our guests for this unexpected closure, and promise to be ready to serve you bright and early tomorrow morning!
Additional information for BFS team members: Both Verizon and AT&T phone systems are currently down in Hoover, AL. Though HR is in the office and on duty, contacting us can only be accomplished via email.
As the BFS operating region from Louisiana to Georgia brace for a winter storm, President Ramon Arias announced these changes to our normally scheduled events:
“Please communicate with your Teams immediately:
1. Today’s Team Meeting is cancelled to:
> Minimize Driving
> Allow our Managers to be at their Units ready to serve our Guests
2. SignDancing is cancelled through Wednesday & will re-start Thursday”
We encourage our team to be ready!
