Opening your own business can be daunting. We understand! That’s why franchising is such a great choice for potential entrepreneurs. Over the years, we’ve fine tuned our business model to learn what works and what doesn’t. Since we’ve done that leg work for you, you have all the time you need to learn, grow, and build your business. You’ll notice the difference this makes immediately, beginning with our stress-free franchise process! We’ve broken it down into eight simple steps.
This is where it all begins! If you’re interested in becoming a Woof Gang Bakery franchise owner, the very first step is to make an inquiry through our convenient online form. Once we’ve received your request, one of our team members will reach out to you to kick off the process with an introductory call.
After we’ve chatted on the phone, we’ll provide you with a detailed overview of your franchising opportunity with Woof Gang, including our expectations, available locations, costs & items, and a copy of our Franchise Disclosure Document (FDD).
Our FDD includes all the details you need on our business model, our place in the market, and your opportunity for success. We ask that you review the FDD carefully, and please feel free to ask us any questions that may come up as you read it. If you’ve determined that we’re a good fit for your skills and goals after reading the FDD, we’ll move onto an application.
Sounds easy enough, right? Your complete application will include detailed financial information. We know that the financial part of this process may feel nerve-wracking, but keep in mind that we’re on the same team. Our franchising team wants you and your business to thrive, and we’ll do whatever we can to make that happen.
We’ll work together to carefully select the right territory for you. Our franchising team uses state-of-the-art technology to evaluate each open territory and ensure it can support a successful store. We’ll look at what’s available in your community, then assign you protection on the area. You’ll know exactly where your store will go. If you’re interested in opening multiple locations, we also offer multi-unit agreements and discounts.
You’ll also have the option of seeing what Woof Gang Bakery is all about by doing a market visit. During your market visit, you’ll have the opportunity to get a feel for your local territory, as well as experience a franchise store near you. While you’re visiting the store, you’ll be able to talk with current franchisees, see the day-to-day operations of a store firsthand, and see the brand in action. Better yet, you’ll also get to meet some happy pets!
Once you’re ready to become an official member of the Woof Gang pack, you’ll sign a Franchise Agreement, then finalize and secure your financing. As soon as the fine print is taken care of, your journey as a Woof Gang franchise owner can begin!
You’ll work with our top-flight development and market intelligence team to find a great location in your area, sign a lease, and work through every step of getting your store built. Wherever possible, we will help you find a location right in your own community. A key ingredient to the fun, caring environment we provide pets and pet parents is that neighbors are serving neighbors!
While you’re getting your business up and running, you’ll also get started with our comprehensive franchise training program, which includes both online and in-store training components. By the time you’ve completed your training, you’ll have mastered everything you need to know about Woof Gang’s brand and services, as well as how to run a successful Woof Gang franchise.
It’s time to welcome all your new furry friends to their local Woof Gang Bakery! In order to help you hit the ground running, we’ll assist you with developing a marketing plan to get the word out about your new business. We’ll be there for your grand opening and see you through every step of your first moments as an active Woof Gang franchise.
If you think that our support ends after your grand opening, rest assured that nothing could be further from the truth. We’ll be by your side throughout every step of your franchising journey, giving you the resources and support you need to build a thriving business. When you’re in our pack, you’re never alone.
