Frequently Asked Questions
How do I know if my area is qualified for a franchise? How do I select a good location?
Two of the most important factors are population density, and demographics. That is, how many people live close enough to your location for you to serve them, and how many of those people have disposable income? We will help you do the research and pick the best location to operate.
Is there a program for employee and manager training?
Yes, there is. Usually we start operators out working in one of our existing stores, so they can study the operation in action and learn the pace and the necessary skills. Then we send specialists to your new location when it opens, and spend time there working side by side with your new staff, to establish routines and teach good habits.
What are the fees and costs associated with franchising?
Fees are quite low relative to the rest of the industry, and there are special programs available for veterans and for companies with relevant expertise looking to develop an area. But you should have some assets, and/or good credit to qualify.
Is there an advertising program?
Yes, there is, and we will provide you with everything you need. Programs vary depending on the geographical area, and your level of participation.
