Step 1: Do Some Research
Take some time to do your own research on our brand. This website is a great place to start! Here we’ve outlined all of the basics of the investment, the training and support you’ll receive, and our industry. If you’re interested in learning more about what we have to offer, contact us! We’ll be back in touch soon to set up a time to talk.
Step 2: Initial Conversations
We’ll spend some time chatting to get to know more about you and your interest in starting your own hydraulic hose franchise. We’ll give you more information about our brand and will answer any questions you may have. Once we get to know each other, if it seems like we’d be a good fit, we’ll move on to the next steps.
Step 3: Reviewing the FDD and Your Qualifications
You’ll receive a copy of our franchise disclosure document (FDD) to review. Take your time with this document: it’s a complex legal text and includes important details about what franchisees are entitled to, and what’s expected of them in return. Meanwhile, we’ll take some time to review your background and ensure that you’re well qualified (personally and financially) to own a PIRTEK franchise. This step will take at least two weeks. Once we’ve both done our due diligence, we’ll mutually decide if we’d like to move forward.
Step 4: Your Franchise Agreement and Fee
If we’ve both decided that you would make a great PIRTEK franchisee, you’ll be presented with a franchise agreement. Signing it will indicate that you read and agree to everything in the FDD, so make sure you’ve read it carefully! At the time you sign your franchise agreement, you’ll also pay your one-time franchise fee. Once this is taken care of, we can get started on opening your franchise!
Step 5: Setting Up Your Business
We’ll provide you with guidelines and assistance through the process of starting your own hydraulic hose business. We’ll give you strategies for finding and hiring employees, characteristics of a great location, and will assist you with marketing and branding. Best of all, you’ll be granted a license to operate exclusively in your territory: you can rest assured that no other PIRTEK franchises will open in your exclusive territory, allowing you to better manage the competition.
Step 6: Your Initial Training
At least two weeks before your grand opening, you and a select few members of your team will join us at our headquarters for initial training. Here, you’ll learn all the ins and outs of how to utilize our support resources, find customers, keep records, and more. We’ll answer all of your questions so that you’ll return to your location feeling empowered and ready to do business.
Step 7: Grand Opening and Beyond
Once your store opens for business, our support doesn’t stop. We’ll provide you with business coaching, technology support, updated practices based on research and development, and much more. Our corporate team will continue to assist you with marketing to raise awareness about your franchise in your territory!
These are just a few of the steps in the process of starting your own hydraulic hose franchise.
