Franchise Dictionary says Rincione "implements programs and systems that have taken the brand to the next level."

Among the recent additions: food trucks. Crave is leaning into the food truck model to complement its brick-and-mortar stores.

Crave has 20 units sold and 90% of its franchisees are veterans. "Samantha and company oversee development, construction, training and operations. She goes out of her way to constantly communicate and keep in contact with each franchisee and constantly innovate the brand. Pre-Covid-19 she had a fully developed app which allowed curbside, delivery, order ahead and a rewards program. She is always ahead of the curve," says Franchise Dictionary.

Rincione co-founded Crave with her husband Sal, who is also the CEO.
