Steps to Franchise Ownership
Ready to begin the journey toward becoming an Office Pride franchise owner?
We realize that investigating to start a business can be intimidating and complex, especially if you have never done it before. Our process is designed to help you identify and clarify your vision and goals for business ownership and determine if Office Pride is a good fit for you.
Step 1: Discovery Call
This is where we get to know each other. We will ask questions to make sure that we understand everything about what is motivating you to want to own your own business and what you want to accomplish with business ownership. We will then educate you on the Office Pride Business System and how we can help you achieve your vision and goals.
Step 2: Franchise Application
We will ask you to complete a franchise application, which includes some basic information, your personal financial statement and our Spot-On business skills profile tool. Spot-On identifies your skills and strengths for business ownership and serves as a foundation for coaching you. We will review this on our next call.
Step 3: Franchise Disclosure Document (FDD)
The FDD is a document required by the Federal Trade Commission to be given to you as a prospective franchisee for full disclosure and your protection while reviewing a franchise opportunity. We will schedule a call to review the highlights of our FDD and any questions you may have.
Step 4: Validation Calls
Validation calls are your opportunity to speak with our franchisees about their experience with Office Pride.
Step 5: Candidate Approval
On completion of the Candidate Approval Form, we will contact your references, run a background check, credit check and verify your funds.
Step 6: Discovery Day
Discovery Day gives you the opportunity to visit our corporate office in Palm Harbor, Florida, for an in-depth tour of our franchisee support center. There, you will meet your support team and interview with the Office Pride executive leadership.
