Protecting Your Investment by Delivering Value

Our primary focus as a franchisor is delivering value to our team of Franchisees. There is no greater threat to a new business than that of cash flow constraints. As a seasonal service business, there is an unparalleled need for a conservative cash position. We work to deliver the best possible return on your upfront investment by keeping initial needs low in cost yet high in value. The preservation of your cash is paramount to your success. By sharing with you our estimated start-up costs, we aim to outline the costs needed to build your business from the ground up. A net worth of $150,000, with access to $50,000 in cash, are realistic thresholds for which we hold our prospective franchisees.
