What is I Love Juice Bar’s process for awarding a juice franchise?
I Love Juice Bar works hard to make sure that new franchisees are going to be a great fit for the brand, are going to enjoy what they do and are going to have a strong chance to succeed — and that’s why we follow a process to help you learn about us, and to help us learn about you, before awarding a franchise.
Here’s what the process looks like:
Step 1: Get in touch with us
If you have not already left us your contact information, please click here and let us know how and when it is best to contact you. If you have left us your contact information, you should be receiving a call from a representative from I Love Juice Bar within the next 24 hours. Please take their call and we will start discussing how your objectives may be met as an I Love Juice Bar franchisee.
Step 2: Fill out an application form
If it seems like we might be a good fit, we’ll send you an application form. It’s not a contract. It provides more details about you and allows us to assess whether you meet the general financial qualifications to open an I Love Juice Bar, and it also enables us to learn more about you. By taking the time to screen franchise candidates, we can ensure that only great folks join our franchise system — people who will help keep the brand strong for everyone.
Step 3: A review of our Franchise Disclosure Document
The next step is for us to provide you a copy of our Franchise Disclosure Document. If you’ve never seen one before, you might be surprised by its length and content. Frankly, it’s long and somewhat complicated, which is the result of the requirements of the Federal Trade Commission. They require a lot of specific content. We will walk you through all 23 sections of the FDD and will answer your questions. Before you sign a deal with us, we also encourage you to review the document with an accountant or an attorney who specializes in franchising.
Step 4: Get to know the family
Joining a franchise system is sort of like joining a family — some are a joy and others are not. That’s why you should absolutely talk to some franchisees before making a final decision. Ask them anything! They’ll share their stories and can provide valuable insights about their experiences starting the business, how their performance has matched their expectations, anything they might do differently, what they love about the franchise and where they may see room for improvement.
Step 5: Visit us at headquarters
Once you’re ready and are ready to fill out a financial application, we’ll invite you to a Discovery Day at our headquarters in Brentwood, Tennessee. You’ll get to see I Love Juice Bar in action, will have a chance to visit stores in the Nashville area and will learn about the systems and support that help franchisees achieve the best results.
Step 6: Find a location
If everyone agrees that we are a fit, two weeks after Discovery Day, we’ll offer you a franchise. Once you sign on, it’s time to find a location, start building out your store, schedule your training and prepare for a Grand Opening marketing push.
