IS THIS BUSINESS RIGHT FOR YOU?
We refer to our process as “matching” because both parties need to get to know one another over a period of time in order to decide if there’s a “match.” The Apóla business model is a fun and exciting opportunity, but it’s not the right fit for everyone nor is everyone the right for Apóla.
Our 7-step matching process is key for a successful, long-term relationship.
After you have filled out the Request for Information Form, a representative will schedule a “Get Acquainted” telephone call. Based on our conversation – we will mutually determine if we would like to speak again so that we may provide you with additional information, including
A) what differentiates Apóla from other Fast Casual Restaurants,
B) business operations, location, demographics, and
C) start-up costs
REQUEST FOR CONSIDERATION
Upon receipt of your completed Request for Consideration Form, our executive team will review the application and if acceptable, award you the opportunity to continue through our process.
CONCEPT COMPATIBILITY CALL
Following the initial phone call, we will schedule a concept compatibility call. This call will begin with a courtesy invitation for your spouse, or supportive decision maker. During this 45 minute call, we will focus on our core values and vision. Based on our conversation – we will determine if our core values align. If so, we will ask you to join us on the Mutual Expectation Call.
MUTUAL EXPECTATION CALL
During this 45 minute call, our team will collaborate to deliver a complete overview of all marketing, training and support programs. Depending on the level of business expertise, some candidates will be scheduled to attend a start-up workshop conference call.
START-UP WORKSHOP CALL
This 45 minute call is an opportunity for you to discuss the start-up costs and process of how to open safely and creatively under budget.
Four to 15 days prior to attending Discovery Day, we will mail or email the Franchise Disclosure Document.
After completing the Mutual Expectation call and/or Start-Up Workshop call, our candidate will be invited to attend a regional certified Discovery Day.
Agreement Execution and the beginning of a mutually successful, long-lasting relationship.
