Process From Here to Becoming a Franchisee
Step 1 - Learn More
To learn more about us, schedule a call or, just complete our request info form. When you request more information, you’ll start to receive emails and text messages that share the Refresh Renovations story. At any time, you can schedule a chat with franchise consultant, Rob Dancy, from our website or from any email.
Step 2: Initial Meeting
You’ll meet with our team at Refresh Renovations’ head office. We’ll explain the Refresh Renovations business model in greater detail and what your franchise will involve. Please bring a list of all your questions; we’ll be happy to answer them.
Getting to know you
This meeting is also about getting to know you and talking through your ideas, expectations and aspirations for your new business. This session should help you decide if this is the business for you, a brand that inspires you, and a team you’d like to be part of.
Step 3 - Information Sharing
Testing the fit
Similarly, we will seek more information from you via an online information request. This is to ensure we are both aligned on expectations. This information is, of course, kept confidential.
Step 4 - Due Diligence
Refresh Renovations will provide a financial scenario planner for you to model the future anticipated performance of the business, as well as a draft business planning template.
This is the most detailed part of the process and typically takes about a month to complete. During this stage we recommend that you take advice from independent financial advisors who specialise in franchise systems.
Draft Franchise Agreement
We will also give you a copy of the draft franchise agreement. You can email us with any questions as you work through this stage.
Talk to Other Franchisees
Lastly, if you would like to talk to some existing Refresh Renovations franchise owners, we’ll be happy to put you in touch.
Step 5 -The Offer
We get together again for a final meeting. This is an opportunity to discuss any issues or outstanding questions that arose during your due diligence. We believe open and honest communication is the right way to begin any relationship.
We then formally offer you a Refresh Renovations franchise and territory. Upon payment of a (non-refundable) fee to cover legal costs, our lawyer will prepare the relevant contract documents for you to take to your franchise lawyer.
Step 6 -The Legal Work
You will have 14 days to accept our offer. Once you’ve decided to purchase a franchise you will need to complete the legal documentation with an experienced franchise lawyer.
To improve the briefing process and reduce your legal costs, we suggest you provide your lawyer with copies of all our correspondence and discussions to date (including emailed questions and answers).
Once you have signed the contract, and paid the franchise fee, you are awarded your Refresh Renovations franchise.
Step 7 - You’re in business!
Set-up and training
Together, we’ll get your business up and running. We will set up your IT and train you on all Refresh Renovations business systems. You’ll be provided with all your branding materials, including vehicle livery, business cards and marketing collateral.
You’ll also start working with your first clients and building your project pipeline. Along the way we’ll provide as much help and advice as you need. It’s the start of an exciting journey for you, and for us!
