Your Path to Franchise Ownership

While other franchise systems are motivated by commission, our development professionals are here to ensure you’re ready to party with us at BounceU. Our goal is to help you decide if we align with your professional, financial and personal goals. Follow along below with our streamlined 7-step path to ownership to get the information you need to join our team.

Exploratory Call

To prepare for the Exploratory Call, we ask that you review & fill out our Application worksheet prior to your call.   A member of our development team will be in touch to guide you through the franchisee qualification process.

We generally recommend all candidates have a minimum net worth of $500,000. In addition, candidates must have access to $200,000 in liquid funds or financing ($100,000 if purchasing an existing store that is for sale).


Steps After the Exploratory Call

Our experienced development team will guide you through the territory assessment & franchise disclosures. The entire process can take anywhere between 30 to 60 days to complete. Here are the steps:

  • Complete an NDA (Non Disclosure Agreement)
  • Signing of Confidentiality Agreement
  • Franchise Disclosure Document (FDD) review
  • Territory Analysis & Mapping
  • Complete a Financial Worksheet
  • Formal Territory Review Phone Call
  • Discovery Day in Scottsdale, AZ or Video Conference
  • Yes/No Decision
  • Execution of Franchise Agreement

Select A Site

You will work with a local real estate broker to help you find the ideal location. Once you find a potential site, you will work hand-in-hand with our construction team to develop layouts for your building, review architectural plans and ensure your construction schedule stays on time.

This process is typically the most time consuming. It is important to hire a qualified local real estate broker, architect and contractor to ensure you can get your BounceU open as soon as possible. The entire process can take anywhere between 3 and 8 months.
