Step Two: “Day in the Life” discussion
If you meet our initial qualifications, we will schedule a more comprehensive phone discussion to provide you with more information about the day-to-day operations of a Young Chefs Academy business, and to cover our training and support programs. This discussion will help you better understand the functions of our business, what it takes to be successful, and how we help and support our franchisees.
Step Three: Franchise Disclosure Document (“FDD”) and Review
We will send you a copy of our Franchise Disclosure Document which provides 23 items of disclosure information about our franchise opportunity, as required by the Federal Trade Commission. After you have read the FDD, we will schedule a time to go over any questions you may have about the document.
Step Four: Speak to our Franchisees
After reading the FDD, you will have the opportunity to speak to our franchisees to ask them questions about their business and what it takes to succeed. This is a very important step in helping you determine whether a Young Chefs Academy franchise may be right for you.
Step Five: Attend Discovery Day
After meeting existing franchisees, you may be invited to attend Discovery Day to meet our management team at our corporate office in Waco, TX to learn more about our systems, technology, marketing and other business processes, and you will have the ability to ask any other questions you may have. If you are approved for a franchise following Discovery Day and wish to become a franchisee, your franchise agreements will be signed and you’ll be on your way to owning your own Young Chefs Academy franchise!
