Frequently Asked Questions
Q. How long do the franchise agreements last?
A. Typically a Master Franchise Agreement is a ten-year contract with two ten-year renewal periods.
Q. How much of this deal is negotiable?
A. Not very much. For a franchise chain to work, everybody must play by the same rules and everybody must make the same commitment for the same promised returns. We are also in a highly regulated industry that requires full disclosure to all prospective investors. We have to live by what we promise and can’t make any side deals.
Q. Will I need my own lawyer and accountant?
A. Yes. Franchising in your Major Market will be subject to federal regulation and, possibly, state regulation, too. Our lawyers and accountants will get yours quickly up to speed on what they will need to be doing for you.
Q. Is my investment in a Master Franchise guaranteed to give me a substantial Return On Investment?
A. There are no guarantees. But if you do what you’re supposed to do by following our plan and using our systems you stand a substantial likelihood of benefiting from your investment.
Q. What if I sell out my 10 PACKNSHIPSTORE™ licenses?
A. Certainly a good problem to have. If your Major Market can support more stores, we’ll be happy to sell you additional licenses. If not, other Major Markets may be available to you and your growing organization.
Q. Can I resell my Major Market?
A. Provided you are selling to a person or group who meets our qualifications for new Master Franchisees, certainly, we’ll allow you to sell your Major Market for a nominal transfer fee.
Q. What is the timeline between my first contact with you and the purchase of my Major Market?
A. Our Director of Sales will get into the details with you, but if you have what it takes there is no reason you can’t be taking control of your Major Market within a month.
