A frozen dessert franchise is a solid business opportunity, and our reputation for strength and stability is an important ingredient in your future success. By capitalizing on the brand, knowledge and stability of our system, the franchise entrepreneur has a competitive edge over someone starting a business on their own.
Our franchisees are important to us and we take great pride in the relationships we build with each and every one. Through our franchise owner network, we can assist new and existing franchisees with support services for operations, marketing and training. The franchisees also provide important input on product development and the overall business.
Our successful franchise relationships didn’t come without hard work. Any franchised business is only as good as the franchisee is prepared to make it. It may start with the expertise and reputation of the franchisor…but it all comes down to you and your initiative, effort and determination. If you’re interested, talk with your accountant and attorney and see if you’re ready for this exciting new business venture.
INQUIRING ABOUT A FRANCHISE
If you’ve read through the initial info and financials and think you’re a good fit, you only have one thing to do now: get in touch with us about applying. Someone will reach out to discuss the possibility of completing a full application.
You don’t need to do anything now except fill out the inquiry form, but we’d like to let you know what the rest of the process looks like.
If we talk and decide we could be a good fit together, we’ll have you complete and return a Franchise Application. It’s in everyone’s best interest to learn as much as we can in the formative stages of our relationship, so please enclose any materials that may be relevant, such as current and complete personal or corporate financial statements. Once we receive your application, a representative from the Franchise Department will contact you to address your initial questions.
FRANCHISE DISCLOSURE DOCUMENT
After receiving your application and determining that you meet our preliminary financial and business qualifications, we’ll set up a personal interview so you can meet members of our management and franchise development team. We’ll discuss the conditions of the franchise agreement, determine the market area you’re interested in and give you the chance to evaluate our organization.
Once all parties agree that the process should continue, we’ll send you a Franchise Disclosure Document (FDD). The FDD contains more information on the company, the company’s financial statements and franchise agreement. Once you’ve reviewed the information, your questions have been answered and the documents have been executed, you should deliver any and all applicable franchise fees, along with your documentation, to the corporate offices.
This is a brief overview of the approval process. Once you receive the FDD and Unit Franchise Agreement, your approval (if it’s granted) will happen within 30-60 days. It’s our intent that the process is informative as well as it is amicable. We look forward to your questions as well as your commitment to excellence.
We’re excited about the possibility of granting you a franchise, but we’re even more excited about having you as part of our team. Good luck!
