FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What will I receive as part of the Garage Living franchise system?
We will provide up to three weeks of pre-opening training at our corporate training center, including both classroom sessions and hands-on training with corporate sales and installation staff. We will also provide you and your staff with on-site training around the time of your location’s grand opening, lasting up to three days. As a franchise owner, you will have access to all of Garage Living’s trademarks, approved product suppliers, and our exclusive business model and procedures. We’ll also present you with a copy of our confidential operations manual to help you run your home improvement franchise business properly on a day-to-day basis.
What type of prior experience do I need to have?
Garage Living franchise owners are not required to have prior construction or remodeling industry experience, but it can be helpful to understand the basics of running a business like ours. In fact, we welcome the opportunity to open a dialogue with existing similar or complementary home improvement businesses who wish to add the Garage Living system to their current operations. In general, we are seeking franchise candidates who have good communications and customer service skills, a strong work ethic, and a dedication to the local community. A solid understanding of business management is also important, and sales skills are also helpful. We expect that franchise owners have adequate capital to invest in the business, and we also expect franchise owners to be directly involved in the daily operations of the franchise business. But regardless of your background, we will provide the training and tools you need to run your Garage Living franchise effectively.
How much will the Garage Living franchise investment cost me?
The projected initial investment range for a single start-up location is between $157,200 and $216,100 (Canadian dollars); this investment amount includes a franchise fee of $45,000. As with any new business venture, it’s important that you have the capital needed to adequately fund your new business.
Is financing available?
We do not offer direct financing to franchisees. We may be able to provide references to qualified financing or lending resources, on a case-by-case basis.
Are there other ongoing fees paid to the franchisor?
Franchisees will be required to pay royalties at a rate of 6½% of gross revenues. These royalties allow us to fund our ongoing support services and the continued development of products and procedures, marketing tools, training programs, and systems upgrades.
Are there any advertising fees?
Franchisees will be required to spend 6% of gross revenues toward local marketing efforts in their territory. Franchisees will also contribute up to 2% of gross revenues into the system marketing fund. Collected funds will be used to develop marketing strategies to promote the Garage Living brand and fund the creative costs to develop any local franchise marketing materials and campaigns.
What is the term of the franchise agreement?
The initial term of your franchise agreement is five years, with three subsequent renewal terms of five years each.
