Steps to Purchase a Sunbelt Franchise
We follow a structured process for helping you learn about the Sunbelt franchise opportunity. It’s called our Discovery Process and at the end of it, we’ll both know if a Sunbelt franchise is right for you.
Our Discovery Process
After you complete our Franchise Information Request Form, we will email you some additional information and then ask you to complete the following steps:
- Program Review Phone Call: a 30-60 minute “get to know you” phone call designed to establish your background and motivations for owning a Sunbelt® franchise. We will provide you with the highlights of our industry and franchise, answer your immediate questions and explain our candidate review process.
- Franchise Disclosure Document: Upon receipt of your completed Profile Form, we will send you our Franchise Disclosure Document (FDD) to review, and set an appointment to answer your FDD questions.
- Q&A: We encourage you to perform independent due diligence/research as part of the process, and come to us with your thoughts and questions. We prefer candidates who exhibit high degrees of enthusiasm, initiative and thoroughness throughout the process.
- Validation Calls: once you have accumulated enough knowledge about our industry and franchise opportunity, we will have you speak with current franchise owners directly about their experiences.
- Launch Timeline: we will work with you to establish your potential Sunbelt® University training dates based on your desired timeframe for launching a business. We will then explain the activities and their deadlines that must be completed in order to attend your desired class.
- Territory Definition: with your target training date established, we will work with you to evaluate your franchised territory options and potential.
- Franchise Agreements: if we offer you a franchise and you accept, we will perform a background check and, assuming your background check is approved, draft your Franchise Agreements for execution.
If you meet our investment parameters and intend to select your business opportunity within the next three months, we invite you to complete our Franchise Information Request Form or call (216) 674-0645 to get started.
