Questions & Answers
We often receive many questions from prospective franchisees. Several of the most commonly asked questions we have referenced here.
Do I need previous retail experience?
Although experience in running a retail business is certainly helpful, we feel that your dedication to quality, service and hard work is more important.
Do I receive an exclusive territory?
Yes. Ours is a community oriented business. Therefore, if your local community has a population of less that 15,000, that community is exclusively yours. In larger communities, we will place more stores, but each will be exclusive within a five kilometer radius.
Am I allowed to own more than one store?
Yes. Your first store(s) must be considered successful before the company will approve another. Our successful franchise owners are encouraged to open multiple locations as they already have proven their ability to succeed.
Who chooses my store location and signs the lease?
Basically, you choose, subject to corporate approval. The space, leasehold improvements and signing of the lease are your responsibility.
Will I be guaranteed success in my new store?
There are always risks involved in starting a new business, so we cannot specifically predict your earnings. Success, or lack of success is based primarily on your commitment, dedication, personal efforts and market viability.
May I contact existing Licensees?
Yes. In fact a complete list of all stores currently open, and operating is available on this website. We encourage you to speak with our existing licensees and to visit as many store outlets as possible.
How do I become a Licensee?
