Steps to franchise ownership

Intro Call: Discuss background and qualifications, determine whether or not the potential exists for the candidate to become a franchisee.

First Interview: Interview determining how the candidate’s goals and objectives can be met as a franchisee by examining how their background, experience and financial ability could translate to success as a franchisee. Ownership application should be turned in during this step.

FDD Review: Review of our Franchise Disclosure Document, which communicates the roles and responsibilities of the franchisee and franchisor. Identify and eliminate any potential contractual barriers to moving forward.

Pro Forma: An opportunity for you to complete a customized pro forma to really understand the economics of the business. Information provided from the FDD’s financial performance section and from other franchisees will be used.

Franchisee Validation: Two phases – franchisee validation teleconferences and a franchise profile survey.
