Here for You from Beginning to End
MÜV Brands strives to ensure a smooth process for individuals interested in learning more about franchise opportunities. Review our steps below to get started.
The first step is to fill out an information request form. One of our franchise consultants will contact you after you submit it to verify your information. During this initial conversation, we can answer your questions and determine your interest in taking the next step.
During this stage, we’ll gather the necessary information to determine what your financial capabilities are and which brand you are the most interested in. Our first objective is to understand who you are (e.g. what your past skills are, what type of lifestyle you desire, and what your overall goals are).
The goal of the organization is to award the franchise system to you. Our approval committee is not looking for someone to “sell” a franchise to – we are looking to gain an ethical and responsible partner that believes in the fitness lifestyle and has genuine concern for their members’ results.
Next, you’ll want to complete an informational questionnaire for us to review. This will help us determine the next step in the process. We will not ask for official financial documents such as your social security number or driver’s license number at this time. There is no obligation to purchase a franchise after filling out this questionnaire – it’s simply a visual confirmation of our previous discussion.
Review of Franchise Documents (FDD)
Once you receive an FDD (Franchise Disclosure Document) from us, you will need to thoroughly examine the contents and seek answers to any questions you may have. Our franchise support team is happy to assist you with additional questions. Our FDD does contain an Item 19.
Call with our President
This is a time to have a short personal talk with Joel Tallman, our President and CEO. We are very interested in getting to know our potential franchisees and aligning our goals in a way that benefits our future relationship.
Consultation with Attorney
As an added step, we suggest a 2nd pair of eyes to review your information if you feel it necessary on your end. Assume there will be a cost associated with that review.
Attend a Discovery Day (Optional)
At this point, we may offer a Discovery Day, where we invite prospective franchise partners to visit a specific franchise location and see fellow franchisees at work. Not only will you receive crucial information to assist in making your decision, but you will also get to meet the staff that will be supporting you throughout the operation of your business.
Once you have gone through all the previous steps, it is time for you to make a decision. Should you choose to own a franchise, you can be confident that you have taken the necessary steps toward owning a MÜV Brands franchise. If both parties agree, paperwork will be submitted to the Approval Committee to seek the award.
