OUR PROCESS

Your Journey Toward Financial Freedom Starts Here

STEP 1

Initial Phone Call

Your path to owning an American Freight franchise begins with an introductory phone call with our Director of Franchise Development, John Henning. During this call, we’ll discuss the financial qualifications, real estate, staffing, investment and any questions you may have regarding our franchising model.

STEP 2

Short-Form Questionnaire

After your initial consult, you’ll complete a short-form questionnaire designed to help us get to know you. The questionnaire only takes 15 minutes to complete.

STEP 3

Franchise Disclosure Statement

You’ve been transparent with us, and now it’s time to return the favor. Step three is your chance to delve into our company’s track record. The Franchise Disclosure Document is an industry-standard report that provides you with in-depth information about financial performance, investment costs, compliance records and more.

STEP 4

Talk With Existing Franchise Owners

During our mutual due diligence process, you’ll get the chance to ask our existing franchise owners questions and vice versa.

STEP 5

Franchise Application

Next, you will submit a franchise application disclosing your financial information, background and credit history.

STEP 6

Attend Discovery Day

Welcome to our version of a show-and-tell! Discovery Days are your opportunity to meet with our executive team, either virtually or in person. During the session, you’ll explore all things American Freight directly with the leadership team and get to ask any questions you have.

STEP 7

BoeFly Submission and Verification

We’ve partnered with BoeFly, a third-party financial technology company, to provide a marketplace of funding solutions and services for our franchise owners. BoeFly conducts detailed credit and background checks with its bVerify system to provide customized solutions.

STEP 8

Committee Review

Almost there! This step involves a formal and final review of your previously submitted franchise application, desired real estate territory and the number of units you’ve requested.

STEP 9

Sign Franchise Agreement

It’s time to sign! Now you’ll finalize the agreement and formally lock in your territory(ies) by signing and paying the franchise fee.
