Taking advantage of a franchise opportunity is a great way to be in business for yourself without having to deal with many of the responsibilities of business ownership on your own. A Happy Joe’s pizza food franchise investment comes with built-in perks, like expert marketing help, established processes and procedures, industry expertise, and more. Still, it’s important to vet any franchise opportunity you’re thinking about, and there’s no better way to do that than by asking questions directly to a franchisor.

Happy Joe’s always welcomes your questions about our brand and our industry because it means you’re serious about a possible investment with us. Here, we’ll look at a few of the most critical questions you should ask of us or any franchisor.

How Resilient Is the Industry?

Some of the most important questions a potential franchise investor should ask a franchisor are those that have to do with the industry the brand sits in. Why? Because the strength of an industry will determine just how successful you’ll ultimately be in it. Your industry questions should include the following:

  •     How resilient is the industry?
  •     Who is the industry’s best customer?
  •     What kind of growth has the industry seen?
  •     How does the brand compete in that industry?
  •     What is the brand’s standing in it?
  •     What plans does the brand have for growth in the industry?

When deciding on a franchise investment, there are plenty of industries to choose from, and these kinds of questions will go a long way toward helping you narrow down your choice. That said, a Happy Joe’s pizza franchise opportunity takes advantage of the robust fast-casual restaurant (QSR) industry and will position you as a leader in it!


What Do the Numbers Look Like?

It goes without saying that some of the more immediate questions you’ll want to ask of a franchisor are about the investment itself, or what the numbers look like - and, more importantly, what they get you! Questions that have to do with money should include:

  •     What is the franchise fee?
  •     What are the monthly royalty and advertising fees?
  •     How much working capital will you need?
  •     What net worth is expected of you?
  •     What will any supplies, fixtures, and inventory cost?
  •     What are the buildout costs, if any?

Your questions should aim to determine as closely as possible what your startup costs will be and what it will cost you each month to do business as part of a brand. The more clearly you understand and define your financial obligations, the better prepared you’ll be to make the most of your investment.

We believe in complete transparency when it comes to a Happy Joe’s pizza franchise opportunity and can provide you with a copy of our Franchise Disclosure Document (FDD), which contains a complete breakdown of costs, among other important information.


How Does the Brand Stand Out?

Every brand should have something to offer consumers that competing brands in the same industry do not. These are called value propositions, and they’re what franchise investors look for when comparing opportunities. You should make sure to ask a franchisor what its competitive advantages are, with questions like:

  •     What kind of proprietary technology, products, or services does the brand offer?
  •     What kind of research and development do brand leaders conduct?
  •     How often does the brand introduce new products or services?
  •     How time-tested is the business model?
  •     What sorts of vendor relationships does the brand have?

The bottom line is the more questions you ask, the more answers you get. Questions like the ones we’ve just identified will not only help you decide on which brand to partner with but will also prepare you for what’s expected of you as a franchisee.


Why Invest in a Happy Joe’s Pizza Food Franchise?

You’ve asked the questions that matter, like the ones above, and you’ve compared your opportunities. But when it’s all said and done, your last question will be the most important one of all: what makes a brand special?

A special brand is one that stands out, that others in the industry look up to and imitate, and that franchisees can feel exceptionally good about partnering with. Happy Joe’s is all that and more! We’ve been helping people make happy memories since 1972, and our menu is an award-winner. From our signature pizzas, tasty sandwiches, and delicious pasta and salads to our fan-favorite ice cream sundaes and other irresistible desserts, your Happy Joe’s franchise will have something for everyone - no questions asked!
