Selecting the right franchise requires proper due diligence. We encourage you throughout this discovery process to validate everything on your checklist to ensure that Paisano's is the right business for you. Below is a step-by-step process that outlines the path to securing a Paisano's franchise in your area:
Franchise Application. Please review our website and submit the Franchise Application. This is the first step in our process to determine if you have the liquidity, net worth and background that we believe is compatible with becoming a Paisano's franchisee. This information will be held in strict confidence and we will not run a credit check at this stage. Click here to complete our application.
Application review and Initial Discussion. Upon receipt of your Franchise Application, we will contact you to discuss our franchise opportunity in greater depth and address any additional questions you may have including available territory for you to develop your franchise location(s).
Visit our locations. This is the best way to determine if Paisano's is the right fit for you. Aside from the economics of the business, we hope that you'll find pride of ownership is a driving force to further investigate joining Paisano's franchise system.
Franchise Disclosure Document (FDD). At or before our first meeting you will receive our FDD, which is required by the Federal Trade Commission and the particular state in which your Paisano's restaurant will be located. This document explains our opportunity in depth and should be reviewed by your franchise attorney and CPA to clarify business terms and conditions. By law, Paisano's personnel, or its agents, are not allowed to furnish you with additional financial projections, potential sales, earnings, earnings claims, or profitability projections. However, we do publish a comprehensive list of our franchisees in Exhibit E of our FDD. You may contact them at this stage to validate financial performance or to answer any other franchise related questions.
Discovery Day. Our Discovery Day meeting is a very important step in our mutual due diligence. This is your opportunity to meet our management team face-to-face to better understand the relationship between franchisee and franchisor. We will take you on a tour of both company-owned and franchised locations. You will also have the opportunity to meet franchisees if they are available during your visit. If you are interested in purchasing a territory for multiple-unit development, we will go over our market study at this time to provide you with an understanding of the commitment we will require to grant you a specified development territory. We will then present you with a Letter of Intent to purchase a franchise(s) if both parties are interested in taking a step forward.
Franchise Agreement and Fee. Assuming we are right for each other, you will be awarded a franchise or multi-unit operator agreement upon execution of the agreement and payment of the franchise/multi-unit fee.
Location and Lease. Once Paisano's receives your executed Franchise Agreement and the required franchise fee, we will help you to identify the right location for your restaurant. We will assist in the lease negotiation process with you.
Architecture and Construction. Once the lease is executed, we will provide you and your local architect with prototypical drawings. We will also participate in the evaluation of multiple bids from contractors to assist you with selecting the right contractor.
Training. After construction has commenced, you will be scheduled for our extensive in-restaurant and classroom training program.
Grand Opening of Your Paisano's Restaurant! Your restaurant will open once the construction or renovation is complete, equipment is installed and the Paisano's in-restaurant and classroom training is complete. Paisano's representatives will assist you during your initial opening and once your restaurant is open, our operational and marketing support continues.
