No, you do not need previous experience at all. What you need is the desire to be your own boss! Regardless of which franchise structure you choose, we provide in-depth training to help you get started and then offer outstanding support along the way to help you grow your business.
The total investment to become a Figaro’s franchisee will depend on which franchise structure you choose. For a single-unit franchise, the investment can range between $86,000 to $546,000. If you elect to purchase a multi-unit franchise, your investment would be a function of how many and the type of stores you plan to open.
Please refer to the INVESTMENT section of the Franchise Disclosure Document for a clear representation of the total investment ranges. In all cases, the investment includes the initial franchise fees, training costs, inventory, build-out expenses, computer hardware and software, and insurance.
All sites, including those that you suggest, will be scored against a list of attributes we have determined to be critical to the potential success of our locations.
At Figaro’s Pizza we do a lot for our franchisees. We begin by providing you with in-depth training on operating and growing your business. You’ll learn the techniques and operational processes of our unique system. Our ongoing support and training programs keep you abreast of the successful techniques we and other franchisees use as well.
We will lend you a copy of our Confidential Store Operations Manual. This manual contains a wealth of information about how to operate and grow your Figaro’s Pizza franchise. Further, we will provide you with marketing aids, sample advertising, promotional recommendations, purchasing guidelines, and other tools you need to start and manage your business.
A simple example of how valuable this is can be seen in our Marketing materials. In nearly 40 years, we and franchisees have tried literally thousands of promotions. But the only ones you will find in our materials are those which have been successful repeatedly. As a result, you avoid reinventing the wheel and the wasted costs of running promotions which didn’t perform.
You will be able to access all of this, and more, on-line via our own private intranet site.
