Open a Chez in 5 Easy Steps
Open in 5 Easy Steps
Are you ready to take the first step to own a Bobby Chez franchise? If you’ve explored our story and feel you would be a great candidate, follow these six steps to ownership.
STEP 1: Pre-Qualification & Brand Introduction
Once you send in your request for more information, have an initial call with our Franchise Team. Together we will determine if you have the qualifications to join the brand, and how well the Bobby Chez franchise will meet up with your goals and business objectives.
We will then present the Bobby Chez story, the unique concept, what it means to be one of our franchise partners.
STEP 2: Application & Franchise Disclosure Document
Complete the confidential Bobby Chez Franchise Application and receive our Franchise Disclosure Document (FDD). This is an FTC required disclosure document for individuals considering a franchise investment.
The FDD shares the essential due diligence information on the licensing arrangement. We will review in detail this document prior to signing an agreement.
STEP 3: CEO Call
Next you will get the opportunity to have a 1-to-1 call with our CEO Matt Friedman where you can present your thoughts and ask key questions about your role in the business. Mr. Friedman will do a deeper dive into how we help you set up and startup your new Bobby Chez Gourmet to Go Franchise.
STEP 4: Discovery Day & Approval
After a virtual walk-through, you will visit a Bobby Chez store to see “Gourmet To Go” in action. Come to our Support Center in New Jersey to meet the team in person and get a hands-on look at the systems and processes used in a running store. This is a great opportunity to learn about the daily responsibilities, training, marketing, and more.
The Executive Team will have one final call with you for a determination on your candidacy and approve your bid to join our brand. You will then receive original franchise agreements.
STEP 5: Training & Launch
Congratulations! You are now one of our newest franchise owners. We help you with the real estate and store set up, and have your Bobby Chez store come to life! You’ll work alongside our real estate and construction departments to find the location, negotiate the lease, manage construction, and prepare for your opening.
Our end-to-end training program ensures that you are fully prepared to launch the business, including onsite training at your Bobby Chez before, during, and after your opening. We want to ensure that you are ready to deliver a gourmet experience right from the start.
