If you’ve been working in the corporate world for a while, you’re probably beginning to wish you had more independence but might be unsure of how to go about achieving it. Opening a Pinkberry franchise is a great way to put the skills you learned in your corporate career to use while also going into business for yourself! At Pinkberry, we know that not all of our prospective franchisees have a background in the frozen yogurt business. That’s why we’ve worked hard to make the process of opening one of our franchises as simple as possible. Let’s take a look at a few key steps in the process of becoming a Pinkberry franchisee.

Reach Out to Us

When you fill out our simple contact form, we’ll review it and reach out to you to set up a time to talk. In our initial conversations, we’ll learn more about you and your background and give you more information about our business, our history, and our franchisees. If it seems like we’d be a good fit, we’ll all move on to the next stages in the process. Like any other new business, opening a Pinkberry franchise requires an investment. We’ll spend some time learning more about your financial standing and informing you on the details of the investment and what you can expect to receive in return.

Signing Your Franchise Agreement

Once we’ve vetted your background and financial information and you’ve carefully reviewed the franchise disclosure document, it’s time to sign your franchise agreement! At this point, you’ll pay your franchise fee so that we can get started on getting your franchise up and running. One of the best parts about opening a Pinkberry franchise is that your franchise fee authorizes you to use our time-tested business model and well-established brand name. That means that you don’t have to waste any time on trial and error with things like processes and products – once your agreement is signed, we can jump right in to establishing your new store!

Taking Part in Your Training

One of the most important parts in the process of opening a Pinkberry franchise is your training! You’ll spend five days training at our headquarters in Scottsdale, Arizona. During this time, you’ll learn the basics of what goes into efficiently running one of our locations. Whether it’s employee scheduling or maintaining our frozen yogurt machines, you’ll learn the ins and outs of what it takes to manage a Pinkberry franchise during our training program.

Finding and Preparing the Right Location

Of course, deciding on where to open your new Pinkberry franchise is also crucial. We have connections with real estate experts across the country that can help you to find just the right location at a great price. Best of all, we’ll be there to help you build out your new location, making sure that it looks great and attractive to customers. Getting a new restaurant set up is never easy, but Pinkberry has years of experience helping new franchisees establish their restaurants. With our help, you’ll be able to avoid many of the hassles and headaches that plague new business owners as they set up their shops.
