Process Steps

Step 1: Initial Inquiry

So far, so good, right? Now, it is time to take the next step to becoming a Farmer Boys franchisee. By completing the simple Request for Information form, you will be connected with one of our franchise representatives. Our friendly staff will guide you through the Franchise Discovery Process to help you decide if owning a Farmer Boys® franchise is the right move for you. We won’t fill up your email inbox with a bunch of unsolicited junk mail. We just need to know how to contact you so we can tell you about this great opportunity.

Step 2: Franchise Application

Now we are getting to the good stuff! After you review the franchising qualifications, it’s time for you to complete an application and return it to us. We’ll review your completed application to ensure we are a great fit for each other. If we see the potential for a compatible fit, we will request your authorization to run a background check and full credit report. When we receive this information and confirm that standards are met, you are ready to move to the next step.

Step 3: Meet the Team Day

Now, it is getting serious! It’s time to meet the team! We love this part of the Franchise Discovery Process because we get to show off our incredible team of people, all of whom work hard to make the Farmer Boys franchise system such a success. We will schedule your Meet the Team Day to offer you a comprehensive look and introduction into the workings of the executive team here at Farmer Boys. During your visit to the Farmer Boys Restaurant Support Center, you will spend time with each department head where you can share your story and ask detailed questions about each department’s function within the Farmer Boys franchise system. This is a no-pressure meeting, aimed solely at getting to know each other as potential franchisee/franchisor partners.

Step 4: Franchise Disclosure Document

After you’ve been qualified as a prospective franchisee, you will receive a copy of our current Franchise Disclosure Document (FDD). This document is a key piece to your franchising puzzle, as it provides you with tons of important information regarding our company, important costs to keep in mind, financial performance histories (Item 19) of our locations, our Franchise Agreement, and our Area Development Agreement. You will have plenty of reading material to help decide if you should turn your Farmer Boys dream into reality! Got questions? Our franchise representatives are eager to help you find the answers!

Step 5: Awarding of the Franchise

Now that you’ve immersed yourself in all things Farmer Boys and completed your Meet the Team Day visit, both you and our Farmer Boys executive team will have a much better understanding of each other’s goals, vision, and plan of execution. This is the point where you will be presented to our Franchise Selection Committee, which consists of our founders, top level executives, and key individuals on the Farmer Boys team. This committee is the group of individuals who will decide if you will be awarded a Farmer Boys franchise. Be prepared to share your story, your passion, and the reason why you would like to become a member of our exclusive Farmer Boys franchise family. Does that sound daunting or worrisome? Fear not, if you have made it this far in the Franchise Discovery Process, you will have been well-equipped with plenty of reasons why Farmer Boys is the perfect opportunity for you!
