Making such a big decision about your future isn't something we expect anyone to do overnight. In fact, we encourage anyone considering this to think long and hard about it to determine if this is right for them and their family. Below is a guide on what you need to do next to find out more about buying a franchise or master franchise via our no obligation process.
The process that is outlined to you below is designed to help you find out whether life as a V.I.P. franchise owner could be for you. You can take as little or long as you like. What is important is that you are right for V.I.P. and V.I.P. is right for you.
As a standalone business owner, I found it difficult to find new customers; you put an ad in the paper and wait, hoping that someone is going to ring you. The ongoing assistance and support from a franchisor with obtaining sale leads really appealed. When I was doing it by myself, I was also figuring it out myself.
Working within the framework of a franchise, you have the support of people that have many years of knowledge and experience’ who are working together to help you succeed.
After speaking to Warren, I realised that they had been interviewing me, rather than the other way round. They weren’t just asking if I had money in the bank!
Upon receipt of your Information Booklet: Your local Regional Master or National Franchisor will contact you for a phone interview. This way you can find out more about the basics of the business and we can find out a bit more about you.
*All master franchise inquiries will be called by National Franchisor first prior to any information being provided.
The next step is to book a couple of "experience day(s)", essentially this is where you get the chance to spend some time with a current franchise owner/trainer.
You will get some hands-on experience, gather more information and get an idea if you can see yourself running a similar business. There is absolutely no obligation, and it is simply an opportunity for you to find out more facts. It is at this step that you will receive your "Local Information Guide" that outlines in more detail the opportunity and financial commitment required to become one of our business owners.
After your experience day(s) if both parties are happy with what they have seen to date, you can book a time to catch up with your local Regional Master/National Franchisor or discuss further by telephone. They will guide you through the process, answer all of your questions and will probably help you formulate some questions of your own. They need to speak with you in person as they need to be confident you are the right sort of person to be a V.I.P. F&HM franchise owner and you need to be confident that we are the right fit for you too.
If you are happy to proceed further, and V.I.P. are happy with your performance and work ethic, the next step is to book in a Doc-Prep Meeting. This is where your local Regional Master/National Franchisor can provide a road-map to guide you into your new business and life!
We only grant franchise territories & regions to those candidates we believe will be successful – after all that's how we build the success of V.I.P.
I would highly recommend Terry for any carpentry work. We have employed Terry’s services on several occasions at our home and he has always been: Punctual Courteous Professional Terry also offers solutions to your problems, he is a great thinker and always has a great outcome to resolve any problems you may have for e.g. we needed a new staircase outside onto our deck and Terry came up with a brilliant idea that no-one else had thought of and it works and looks wonderful!!

Dear Ange, I just wanted to say thanks and what a pleasure it was to have you build my back fence. At the time of calling you I was in a desperate situation of needing the fence built urgently, you were not only able to meet my needs with the timeframe, but your advise on what would be best with regard to how the fence should be constructed, and the assurance re the quality of work and materials overall represents 100% satisfaction on my part. Once again thanks for everything, the fence looks great, and I will not hesitate to recommend you to anyone who needs a fence. Cheers.
