Simple six-step process
So, you’re interested in getting started? Terrific! We can’t wait to welcome you to the franchise family. Now that you know our story, we want to know yours. The following six steps will help us to get to know you better. We want to learn your interests, experience, skill sets, and goals for your business ownership. We want to address your questions and concerns so we can help you to see if our opportunities may be the best fit for you. The following is our step-by-step process for doing just that.
Start by downloading our free franchise information brochure on any page of this website, review it to learn the basics, and then call us to set up a Step 1 webinar so you can begin learning much more.
Schedule and attend a private web meeting
This personal, live web meeting is a brief but very thorough overview of the brand. The main topics covered are:
- The history of Clothes Mentor.
- What the brand represents to both the consumer and to the franchisee (store owner).
- Where the brand fits into the marketplace and why the stores thrive.
- How the franchisee/franchisor relationship really works and our culture.
Qualify and meeting the brand director
Once we receive your application and if you are pre-qualified, we will arrange an information phone call between you and our Brand Director. The Brand Director will highlight many brand developments and discuss current initiatives being implemented to further grow bottom-line results. In addition, this is a great opportunity to get more of your questions answered.
Review the FDD and get your questions answered
Review of the Franchise Disclosure Document(FDD) and associated video tutorials. The FDD contains details of the investment, territory protection, overview of our training, support and much more. After reviewing, we schedule a follow up call to answer your remaining questions.
Validations, research and territory protection
In addition to the lists provided in the FDD, we can also provide you with contact information of franchisees who have opted in and volunteered their personal time to speak with you for a more in-depth conversation. We will also cover territory protection with you in a short mapping session of your market area.
Attend discovery day
Not a decision-making day, but rather a one-day orientation covering our franchise services. It’s held at our corporate headquarters in Minneapolis, Minnesota and takes place before you make any decision on your new business. You’ll meet Clothes Mentor’s key personnel, who will present you with concise overviews of all the tools that we provide our franchisees to become successful business owners. The interaction allows you to form a well rounded impression of us and the culture and values of our company.
The main topics covered are:
- Business planning
- Bank Transfer
- Store location assistance
- Store opening assistance
- Point-of-sale system
- Regional Operations Manager
- Franchise Disclosure Document
Award the franchise
This is the final step in the franchise process where franchises are awarded to qualified candidates.
