WE WELCOME YOU TO JOIN US AS A FRANCHISEE TODAY
We provide an initial training program for all franchisees. The initial training program consists of a comprehensive program that provides you with the methods, procedures and techniques you need to operate your business.
The Initial Training Program is at a location designated by us, currently at our headquarters in Illinois. You or a Principal Owner, if you are a business entity, must attend and successfully complete the Initial Training Program. You may send up to three persons to the Initial Training Program at no additional charge. If you want more than three persons to attend the Initial Training Program, you must pay us a fee of $2,500 per person. All travel, lodging, meals, salary and benefits, and incidental expenses in connection with the Initial Training Program for you and your employees are your responsibility.
The Initial Training Program includes approximately 112 hours of training for 14 days (excluding weekends and holidays) and is currently conducted on an as needed basis. There is no fixed training schedule. The primary instructional material is the Manual and supplemental handouts.
In connection with the beginning of operation of your Business, subject to our availability and scheduling conflicts, we will provide you with at least two days of on-site assistance in the beginning of operations of your Business at your Principal Office. From time to time, we may present seminars, conventions, or continuing education programs, or we may conduct meetings for the benefit of all franchisees. Some of the Ongoing Programs may be optional and some may be mandatory.
