Frequently Asked Questions
What is a Franchise?
A franchise is a method of distributing services involving a franchisor, who establishes the brand's trademark or trade name and a business system, and a franchisee, who pays a royalty and an initial fee for the right to do business under the franchisor's name and system.
The See Spot Grooming Franchise Opportunity is a Business Format Franchise. What does this mean?
This type of franchise includes best practices for See Spot Grooming services, the use of the See Spot Grooming trademark, but also the complete method to conduct the business itself, such as the system marketing plan, included tools and resources, and operations manuals. The See Spot Grooming Franchise Opportunity is a Pet Business Franchise.
How does the See Spot Grooming Franchise Program determine who is awarded a franchise?
While every pet and client deserve a See Spot Grooming experience, not every person is a "Spot". We screen candidates for franchises as carefully as they are screening us to ensure we are a proper fit for a long and happy business relationship. Your success is our success.
I'm ready to go! Can we just skip the process and get started?
The See Spot Grooming Franchise process reflects best practices in the franchise industry and we are stuck on doing things the right way! We have an organized and systematic approval and vetting process, bear with us, you will appreciate the attention to detail and results. Finding the right Pet Business Franchise is as important to you as finding the right Pet Grooming Business Franchisee is to the See Spot Grow Franchise team. Let's take our time to make sure we are a good fit together.
Do you negotiate your fees or terms?
Because we believe in fair and equitable business practices and all of our franchisees deserve to be treated equally, we do not negotiate our franchise terms or fees.
Do I pay my own expenses for Discovery Day and on-site training at See Spot Homebase?
Yes. We help coordinate your arrival and provide an agenda for every visit so that your time is valued and you achieve your visit's goals; however, your travel costs are your responsibilty. We have a helpful list of places to stay and can even offer fun things to do/see in the area so that you can make the most of your visit.
Can I bring anyone else with me for my Discovery Day visit to See Spot Homebase?
We are a family-oriented business and encourage you to have a great work/personal life balance. When you visit See Spot Homebase for your Discovery Day, we encourage anyone who will be financially vested in your See Spot Grooming Franchise to attend and Spark their passion. Your time will be filled with hands-on opportunities to experience the inner workings of a See Spot Grooming Salon as well as learn and focus on any final questions or concerns either of us may have. If you choose to bring family members, we are happy to suggest local flavors and experiences for them to enjoy while you are immersed in your Discovery experience.
I want to continue in my current line of work. Do you allow passive ownership of a See Spot Grooming Franchise?
The short answer is- maybe. A See Spot Grooming salon is a labor of passion and hard work. Yourself or a vested equity manager will need to focus your time and attention on the daily operations. For full details, please refer to the See Spot Grooming Franchise Program FDD for full information on the type of opportunities you may entertain as a future See Spot Grooming Franchise owner. It is our belief that a Pet Business Franchise needs daily attention from a vested equity business owner/partner.
