1. Review website franchise information
Many of your initial questions will be answered right here on our website so please start here.
2. Complete Information Request Form
Please complete our Request Information form to receive additional information, and to provide us with a better picture of your financial and managerial plans. If you meet our preliminary criteria, and your territory is available, a representative will be in touch with you within 2 business days.
3. Initial Phone Call
During your initial phone call, we will further discuss The Big Cheese opportunity, as well as 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 The Big Cheese Franchise Sales Associates, we will send out a marketing packet with additional information on becoming a franchisee.
5. Review FDD
Upon receipt of your Request Information 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 is what you ultimately sign in order to become a The Big Cheese franchisee.
6. 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 the 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.
7. Discovery Day!
Your discovery day is generally held within 30 days of your FDD conference call. Discovery days are held at our corporate headquarters in Calgary, Alberta, Canada during which you will have the opportunity to view our operations first-hand to see how The Big Cheese works, as well as spend time with our staff and President.
If we feel that you are a stong franchisee candidate, we will send you a formal written offer including your assigned territory. The signing is done remotely and does not require a trip back to our headquarters.
