1. Initial Call & Franchise Information Guide
We’ll give you detailed information about what it takes to open a restaurant business and will determine if it seems like we’d be a good fit for your area.
2. Review the Details
You’ll have a chance to review our franchise disclosure document (FDD) to get all of the fine print on the investment. We’ll learn more about your area to assess its potential as the site of a new Perkins restaurant. We’ll also take a look at your finances and background to ensure you’re well-prepared to own a restaurant franchise.
3. Mutual Approval
At this point, you will have a clear idea of the road ahead and whether this opportunity is a mutual fit for Perkins and you. After the mutual approval, you and any business partners you may have will need to sign the then-current franchise agreement. Signing the franchise agreement indicates that you agree with all of our terms, including those laid out in the FDD. You’ll pay your initial franchise fee at this time, and then – congratulations! It’s time to really get to work on opening your restaurant business.
4. Find and Prepare Your Location
We’ll give you guidelines on how to select the perfect location in your area. During this stage, you’ll be getting your location ready for business (e.g. construction and initial marketing) while also mastering our business model through the Perkins initial training program.
5. Welcome Perkins to Your Community!
Our team will help you prepare a targeted marketing campaign to spread the word about your new business. We’ll work closely with you throughout your grand opening to ensure that all goes well. Once your doors have opened and your business is running smoothly, we’ll continue to work with you to set goals for growth and support you in your operations.
