The Steps to Become a Franchisee
Unlike other franchise systems that are driven by commission, our team of development professionals’ goal is to ensure franchisees are ready to bring birthday parties to life. They simply want to help learn if what we’re looking for aligns with your professional, financial and personal goals. Follow the simple 7-step guide to ownership to learn about the information you need to join our team.

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
