In fact, many of our investors don’t have much experience starting up any new business at all. However, our franchise stands out because the simplicity of our business model leads to an amazingly easy startup process. Here’s a sneak peek at some of the key steps new franchisees work through.
This website contains a good deal of valuable information on starting a children’s fitness franchise with Amazing Athletes. Take some time to read through it, especially information on our training and support programs and industry trends. If the basics sound appealing to you, the next step will be to get in touch and learn more.
Our simple contact form can be found throughout our website. Fill it out to indicate that you’d like more information on our brand! We’ll be in touch soon to set up a time to talk and learn more about one another.
We’ll spend some time getting to know you: your background, your goals, and your interest in starting a youth sports franchise. We’ll also give you more information about ourselves, our brand, and the qualifications we’re looking for in franchisees. If it seems like we’d be a good match, we’ll dig deeper in the next step.
We’ll provide you with a copy of our franchise disclosure document (FDD) to review on your own. The FDD is an important legal document – should you choose to sign a franchise agreement, you’ll be indicating that you’ve read it thoroughly and agree to the terms it outlines. The FDD goes into fine detail about things like our obligations, fees you’ll pay, our brand’s history, and much more.
While you’re reviewing the FDD, we’ll take some time to review your background and ensure that you’re qualified to run one of our franchises. In particular, we’ll be interested in reviewing your financial standing. We’re looking for franchisees with sufficient capital to nurture their business in its early months without breaking the bank.
Once we’ve both carefully researched one another, and you know that you agree to the terms outlined in the FDD, you’ll be ready to sign a franchise agreement. Your initial franchise fee will also be due at this time. Once this is taken care of, we can really get to work on starting your kids’ fitness franchise.
You’ll spend around a week (depending on the programs you’d like to offer) at our corporate headquarters in Tennessee. There, you’ll learn the basics of how to own and operate an Amazing Athletes franchise, from curriculum to business management.
We’ll work with you to develop a targeted marketing campaign to generate a buzz around your new business before it’s opened. We’ll help you identify prospective clients in your area, and to catch the attention of parents, teachers, and kids. During this stage, we’ll also help you implement the practices you learned in training to ensure that you’re off to a strong start.
Now that your doors are open, you can start building your business by providing quality service to your clients and generating positive word-of-mouth! Of course, our support doesn’t end here: we’ll continue to work with you to strategically grow your business.
