Are there different shop formats?
TFD has defined four shop formats that adapt to different locations. This suites the goal of providing clients with available stores nearby, and giving franchisees different choices for investment.
The difference of the stores is on the variety of products sold.
- Shop in shop: From 30 to 50 m2
- Express stores : From 40 up to 90 m2
- Neighborhood stores : From 90 up to 200 m2
- Mobile units
What are the steps to franchise and open a shop?
- Candidate approval
After filling out the “Franchisee Request Form” and a serious of personal interviews, if the candidate fits into the TFD requirements, a franchise pre-contract is to be signed.
TFD is to offer support in the search and evaluation of the store location, although the final decision is on the franchisee.
- Franchise contract
Once the location is decided, the franchise contract is to be signed. The goal is then to open the store on a defined location at a defined schedule, and to receive the corresponding training courses for the store responsible.
- Construction of the store
The franchisee is to receive support regarding image, decoration, design, equipment, etc., so that the store can be build by following efficient operation procedures defined by TFD.
- Store opening
Once the approval in relation to the store standards is granted on TFD’s behalf, and once the training for the crew is successfully finished (among other issues), the store is to be opened.
