Our franchise discovery process is designed to help us both determine if Urban Air is the right fit for you as a franchisee and us as your franchisor. It will provide you a thorough introduction to our brand that will equip you with everything you need to make an informed decision about investing in your future with our company.
GOALS, OVERVIEW & YOUR DECISION CRITERIA
Working together, we’re committed to investing the time necessary to understand your experience and what you’re seeking to accomplish. We will thoroughly explore your personal and professional needs, your fit with Urban Air Parks Franchising, along with the timeline, selection criteria, and investment range. We’ll discuss your questions, excitement or concerns you may have as well. Make sure you are able to spend 45-60 minutes without distractions.
This is a deep-dive presentation into our vision, objectives and the unique value proposition that our Franchisees offer to clients. This is where we determine whether it makes sense to continue the discussion, through an open and honest dialogue. Here, you’ll get a clear picture of our business and culture, and learn the profile, style, character and habits of a successful Franchisee. If we both elect to move forward, we’ll schedule next steps and establish firm timelines. Make sure you are able to spend 45-60 minutes without distractions. This will be a video meeting.
COMPLETE REQUEST FOR CONSIDERATION
The confidential, non-binding “Request for Consideration” demonstrates to Urban Air Parks Franchising that you are serious about exploring this opportunity and want to learn more about Urban Air Parks Franchise. There is no obligation or commitment to invest at this point; once we’ve received and discussed your Request For Consideration, we will set up our next call to provide the Franchise Disclosure Document (FDD), which includes more detail on training, mutual obligations, the initial investment, average park volume and ongoing expenses associated with owning and operating the business. Please plan to complete the online form within 1-3 business days.
FUNDING PROCESS AND TERRITORY ANALYSIS
Urban Air Parks Franchising has dedicated small-business lender relationships in place, and can help you understand the funding environment, what to expect, and the different options that could be available. We will make introductions with our funding partners, who can assist you in understanding and completing their processes. During this step, we will also review your potential Urban Air Parks Franchise target area and site selection/real estate process.
BUSINESS REVIEW OF FRANCHISE DISCLOSURE DOCUMENT
The Federal Trade Commission requires a Franchise Disclosure Document (FDD), which is thoroughly reviewed with prospective candidates. This is a comprehensive information outlay, including our company background, management team, a detailed breakdown of the total investment, average park volume, a full list of current Franchisees, franchise agreements, our company financials and more. We want to make sure you fully understand every aspect of the business and our mutual obligations. It is also critical that we document your selection criteria and ensure that Urban Air Parks Franchise is the right fit for you.
ATTEND DISCOVERY DAY EVENT
This is your opportunity to meet our entire executive team in person, ask the tough questions, and for us to evaluate you. You’ll be immersed in the Urban Air Parks Franchise culture and the ways we can help you accomplish your goals through possibly becoming an Urban Air Parks franchisee. You’ll get to visit and have a hands-on experience in one of our Urban Air Parks. You will have the opportunity to share even more details as to why you possibly becoming an Urban Air franchisee is the right choice. No final decisions are made at discovery day.
FINAL FRANCHISEE REVIEW & FINANCIAL VALIDATION
Once you’ve attended a Discovery Day and received an award letter, you will have a final call to review next steps and any other questions.
