Getting Started with a Franchise
1. Review franchise information on www.SquidLipsGrill.com. Many of your initial questions will be answered by the information provided here.
2. Complete “Information Request Form”
Please complete our Information Request Form to receive additional information. If you meet our preliminary criteria and your territory is available, a representative will be in touch within 2 business days.
3. Initial phone call
During our first call we will further discuss the Squid Lips opportunity. We will also cover a few key topics including; your motivation, business background and territory of interest.
4. Receive marketing packet
After you’ve talked with one of Squid Lips Sales Associates we will send out a Marketing Packet with additional information on the program and a Request for Consideration Form.
5. Return Request for Consideration Form
The form tells us that you are serious about the opportunity and it will also give us a clear picture of your financial and managerial plans.
6. Receive FDD
Upon receipt of your completed Request for Consideration Form, we will mail you our Franchise Disclosure Document (FDD). The FDD further defines the relationship between the Franchisor (us) and the Franchisee (you). It is a legal document, and it is what you will sign in order to become a Squid Lips franchisee.
7. FDD Conference Call
Within two weeks of receiving the FDD, we will contact you to schedule a FDD Conference Call. This call will give you the opportunity to ask any questions that you may have about the FDD or Franchise Agreement. If you plan to review the FDD with an attorney, or have specific legal questions, please submit your questions prior to our call.
8. Discovery Day!
Your Discovery should be held within 30 days of your FDD Conference Call. Discovery Days are held at our corporate headquarters in Melbourne, Florida. You will have the opportunity to view our operations and see firsthand how Squid Lips works as well as spend time with our staff and President.
If we feel that you are a great franchisee candidate, we will send you a formal written offer including the assigned territory. The signing is done remotely and does not require a trip back to our headquarters.
