We’re proud to say the steps toward franchise ownership with Happy Joe’s are pretty simple and very informative. Below are a few of the more important ones you’ll take toward owning a national pizza franchise with us.
Your Happy Joe’s fast-casual pizza franchise journey will likely start right here on our website. Fill out the brief form on our contact page with some basic information about yourself. This will let us know you’re interested in our opportunity. Once we receive it, someone from our Happy Joe’s team will reach out to start the conversation. It’ll be our chance to get to know each other better and to hear more about your background. If we feel like our goals and values align, we’ll move on to the next steps.
Now you’ll have the chance to review our Franchise Disclosure Document or FDD. An FDD is a very important document that all brands are required to have because it goes over a potential investment in detail. Our FDD outlines our company background and management team, and provides a detailed breakdown of our investment, among other essential information. Many potential franchisees read an FDD with their attorney, and we’re always available to answer any questions you may have about ours.
There’s no better way to appreciate a Happy Joe’s opportunity than by speaking directly with our CEO — better known as our chief happiness officer — Tom Sacco! Tom has deep industry experience and is leading our brand into the future. He loves everything about the Happy Joe’s opportunity and will tell you all about our time-tested business model, the training and support you can look forward to, as well as our marketing help that will keep you in front of your best customers at all times.
Congratulations! You’ve signed your franchise agreement, paid your one-time franchise fee, and are now part of one big Happy Joe’s family! Now it’s time to start your pre-opening training and find and build out your new restaurant. We can’t wait to get going!
All our new franchisees receive expert pre-opening training that will prepare them to leverage our business model to the fullest. Through a combination of classroom and on-the-job instruction, we’ll go over topics like:
You can also look forward to a list of approved suppliers for things like furniture, lighting, kitchen equipment, and more, and you will benefit from a Happy Joe’s franchise expert who will be on hand during the first few weeks of business to make sure things are going smoothly.
