5 Steps to Owning a Pretzel Franchise

Apr 29, 2015

Some people may think that owning a pretzel franchise is impossible. However, with strong companies like Pretzelmaker, we pride ourselves in providing all the tools, support, and resources you need to get your business running. Check out these 5 steps that go into owning a Pretzelmaker franchise:

5 Steps to Franchise#1: Get to Know the Franchisor

Before buying a pretzel franchise, we encourage you to get to know the company’s members and their brand. Visit a couple of Pretzelmaker stores and get a feel for the environment, systems, and day-to-day life. Schedule in-person meeting or calls with our executives and fire away with as many questions as you may have. The key here is to be certain that you’re familiar with the franchise so that you’ll be happy with your decision.

#2: Prepare a Business Plan

This is especially important if you plan to take out a loan for funding your pretzel franchise. A strong business plan will not only show that you have a sound plan in place, it will also backup your claims of confidence that you’re ready to take on the responsibilities. In addition to having something to show key players, a business plan will also help to set tangible personal goals, so that you can keep track of your progress and how you’re meeting those goals.

#3: Sign the Contract

After you’ve finished all the preliminary visits, discussions, and provided information to Pretzelmaker, you’ll be on your way to signing the contract. Of course, be sure that every single one of your questions have been answered by this point to ensure that the rest of the process is free of surprises by all parties involved.

#4: Learn the Ropes

Once the contract is ready-to-go, it’s time to learn the ropes. Begin your training with Pretzelmaker to ensure that you know all the systems, processes, and recommendations or running a stellar pretzel franchise. Pretzelmaker offers extensive, hands-on training opportunities to ensure that you’re fully-equipped with everything you need to get your business off the ground. After initial training, you’ll be able to order all the equipment and inventory you need to put smiles on your customers’ faces.

#5: Build a Team

Of course, you won’t be able to run the entire business on your own. You’ll need a team of hard-working and dedicated staff members to help with daily functions of the store, like baking pretzels and providing top-notch customer service to your clients. Utilize all your resources like personal referrals and specialized web platforms to make sure you’re building the right team.
