Franchisees are selected based on the following main criteria:
1. Type of work experience
2. Career goals and entrepreneurial spirit
Yes, owners of other franchises can most certainly qualify for a Freshslice Pizza franchise – as long as they understand the restrictions (if any) of their current contract with the franchisor. We welcome with open arms experienced franchisees to join Freshslice Pizza.
The total investment for a Freshslice restaurant ranges from $130,000 – $450,000.
If you have an existing site, our team will only need to renovate it, and bring in our equipment and branding materials. If you would like to open a new restaurant entirely, the investment will be on the higher end due to construction costs, however it is still about half the cost compared to our competitors.
As a Franchisee you will need around $150,000+ of unencumbered funds (45% of the total investment + $10,000 operational cash flow).
You will receive a turn-key restaurant that will include:
- Support in identifying and approval of a location
- Store design and construction
- All required equipment and inventory
- Advice and assistance in the hiring of required staﬀ
- Support with purchasing and distribution assistance
- Quality control check-ups
- Regional district managers
- Free marketing and advertising services
- Grand opening party
It is preferred you have experience in either the food and beverage industry, sales, or the retail industry, but not mandatory. We look more speciﬁcally at whether you have managed a team, worked in a restaurant, or have run a small business. We are equally welcoming as long as you have the entrepreneurial spirit, the drive, and the commitment for making it successful.
You can expect support in all areas of your business. This includes:
- Purchasing Power
- Quality Control
- On-going Training
- Operations Systems
- Financial Management Systems
- New Product Development
- Customer Service Training
If our Real Estate team has a location available, then yes we will provide it for you if you pass the application process. However, if we do not have a location available we will support you in identifying a good location based on our required parameters.
Your total training from start to end will consist of 3 weeks. First, you start with an On The Job Evaluation (O.J.E.) which consists of a 1-week evaluation & training period. Your O.J.E. will be a great starting point for us to not only gain a better understanding of your current knowledge and learning speed, but also for you to get a better understanding of us as a brand and future partners. After you have completed your O.J.E., you will be scheduled for your management training which takes 2 weeks. From there you will receive ongoing support from our business coaches and the head oﬃce team.
Yes, we have partnered with a few banks to help you build your dream.
You will purchase all of these from Freshslice and other authorized suppliers.
Freshslice has designed a comprehensive grand opening program that will give your business a tremendous kick-start. We will plan, schedule, and coordinate all the promotional material and advertising for you, so you can concentrate on training and customer service. The investment required for your grand opening program is approximately $5,000.
Since our initial investment is so low, the return on your investment can be exceptionally high. The amount of proﬁt you make is largely based upon your ability to closely follow our business system and to be passionate about Freshslice and its products. Upon signing the Conﬁdential Qualiﬁcation Report, we will give you a detailed list of franchisees you can visit to discuss their business details. In the meantime, you can read some testimonials from some current partners.
Yes, you can. If we have an existing location for sale, we will provide you the details about the location and will support you in purchasing it.
