What is provided as part of the Grizzly Auto Detailing franchise program?
We are excited to welcome you to our headquarters to train with our founding team for eight days! We’ll give you some pre-training class materials, then you’ll spend three days in class, three days on-the-job, and two days in System X training to learn about Ceramic Coating. We will also provide an onsite training visit at your location for one and a half days around your opening. Of course, we are always available via phone and email when you need us. Franchise owners also have exclusive access to our confidential operations manual, from the moment they are selected to open an auto care franchise with Grizzly Auto Detailing, as well as our custom business technology tools.
How much will the franchise cost me?
The total initial investment necessary to begin operations ranges from $76,450 to $136,150. This includes a $45,000 initial franchise fee for a single territory agreement. As with any new venture, it’s important to have adequate capital to fund the initial business growth stages.
Is financing available?
We do not provide direct financing to franchise owners, but we may refer to financing sources on a case-by-case basis. Plus, as veterans ourselves, we have particular knowledge of financing resources that are available to qualified vets.
Are there ongoing fees to pay?
We collect a royalty fee equal to 7% of gross revenues. Fees such as these allow us to fund our ongoing support services and the continued development of programs, marketing tools, training programs, and systems upgrades. For a full list of fees and requirements, please refer to our Franchise Disclosure Document (FDD).
Are there any advertising fees?
Franchise owners will be required to spend a minimum of 5% of gross revenues per month on local marketing on an ongoing basis. They can choose to allow 3% of that to be managed by the franchisor and its affiliates and vendors for local digital marketing campaigns, or they can allow the franchisor to manage the full 5% local marketing requirement. Franchise owners are expected to spend $7,000 on their Grand Opening. Franchise owners will also contribute up to 3% of gross revenues into the brand marketing fund (currently set at 1%). Collected funds will be used to develop marketing strategies to promote the Grizzly Auto Detailing brand and cover the creative costs to develop branded marketing materials and campaigns.
What is the term of the agreement?
The initial term of your agreement is five years, with two subsequent successor agreement options of five years each.
