How to Franchise
with the Frog Squad

Once you let us know you’re interested, the franchise ownership process begins. Here’s what that looks like.

step 1

FIRST DATE

This is the initial call between Jeremiah’s and you, the candidate. Why do we call it a first date? We will get to know you, you will get to know us, and if there is a potential fit, we can take things to the next level.
TIMING: 15 min.
ITEMS TO COMPLETE: none

step 2

FRANCHISE APPLICATION

We will ask you to share basic information about your current financial situation, background, and experience to help us better understand your qualifications.
TIMING: 45 – 60 min.
ITEMS TO COMPLETE: Franchise Application

step 3

POST-APPLICATION PHONE INTERVIEW

We will schedule a Zoom session to discuss your deepest, darkest secrets (just kidding). This meeting will allow us to spend some time reviewing your Franchise Application together and discussing your background, strengths, opportunities, and your potential fit as the newest member of the Jeremiah’s Frog Squad.
TIMING: 60 min.
ITEMS TO COMPLETE: none

step 4

DISCOVERY/DUE DILIGENCE PROCESS

The following items will not necessarily be completed in this order, and are all equally as important.

RECEIVE AND REVIEW FDD After reviewing your application, you will be sent our Franchise Disclosure Document. We will allow you some time to review and then will schedule a more formal time to discuss the document together, provide you the Cliffs Notes, and answer any questions you may have.
TIMING: 45 min.

ITEMS TO COMPLETE: Sign FDD Receipt

PROFORMA PLAN Your proforma will help you to make a more informed decision on Jeremiah’s as a potential fit from a financial perspective. Using the information provided to you from the FDD and the information you may have obtained from your own research, you will prepare a proforma plan using our provided template
TIMING: 30 min.
ITEMS TO COMPLETE: Sample ProForma

FINANCIAL / BACKGROUND VERIFICATION You as a franchise candidate will submit required information via a 3rd Party online verification system for verification of assets and a soft credit pull as well as background checks. Using this online verification tool will also make next steps to securing financing more seamless.
TIMING: 15 min.
ITEMS TO COMPLETE: none

PEEK BEHIND THE CURTAIN An opportunity to experience Jeremiah’s from the other side of the counter. You may schedule a store visit with a current franchisee.
TIMING: 2 – 4 hrs.
ITEMS TO COMPLETE: none

step 5

VIRTUAL DISCOVERY DAY

A discovery process with Jeremiah’s HQ where we share our deepest, darkest secrets with you (and no, we’re not kidding this time). After going through a series of online videos, you’ll have the opportunity to meet our team to ask a series of questions and learn more about the brand. This will be a 30 minute Zoom ‘speed dating’ session.
TIMING: 1.5 hrs. for Online Video Journey & 35 – 45 min. for Zoom Session

step 6

POST-DISCOVERY DAY APPROVAL

After your virtual visit with HQ, and if the Jeremiah’s team feels there is a mutual fit, you will be given a rose during our final rose ceremony (okay … we’re kidding again). All jokes aside, if you are approved by the team following Discovery Day, we will schedule a zoom session to confirm next steps, discuss territory and confirm operational plans.
TIMING: 15 min.
ITEMS TO COMPLETE: Agreement Request Form

step 7

SIGN FRANCHISE AGREEMENT

Congratulations! Upon execution of your franchise agreement and funding you will be officially onboarded a member of the Jeremiah’s Frog Squad!
