COMPLETE THE LGA (Let’s Get Acquainted Form). Your application will be reviewed by our Franchise Sales Director and Officers.

STEP 3

COMPLETE OUR FINANCIAL APPLICATION. Your application will be reviewed by our Franchise Sales Director and Officers to ensure that you have the necessary net worth and capital to open a Shapes location.

STEP 4

RECEIVE AN ELECTRONIC VERSION OF OUR FDD (Franchise Disclosure Document). The FDD will be provided to you, and our franchise sales team will be available to answer questions that you have during your review of the document

STEP 5

MAKE VALIDATION CALLS WITH EXISTING FRANCHISEES. The FDD contains a list of all franchisees in our system. In addition, our franchise sales team will provide you with a biography of each franchise owner, plus a contact number for you to call each of them to address any questions that you may have.

STEP 6

SCHEDULE A Q & A SESSION with our Franchise Sales Director and President of Shapes Franchise, Debbie Stewart. The purpose of the conversation is to provide you an opportunity to gain a greater understanding of the business and the culture.

STEP 7

ATTEND A DISCOVERY DAY in Tampa, Florida. Your visit to Tampa will give you a complete overview of what it is like to be an owner of a Shapes Franchise location. Our Discovery Days are typically conducted in one day, and our schedules are fairly flexible, so we will adjust our schedule around your planned trip. We will answer any final questions you have about the Franchise Agreement and the franchise territory. We will review the expectations that we have and provide you a thorough overview of support services.

STEP 8

SIGN FRANCHISE AGREEMENTS and schedule your introductory session with our team to prepare for your training session. Welcome to Shapes! We are excited that you have joined The Pink Movement!
