Here’s the process for opening your own EarthWise Pet store
We pride ourselves in providing the support our franchisees need to be successful. We also have many owners that prefer to remain autonomous. Whatever your preference, we have flexible options for pre- and post-opening.
The evaluation process
Our simple, 6-step process makes it easy to determine whether EarthWise is a good fit:
After you fill out a contact form on this site, we will email you the EarthWise Franchise Report, which contains financial performance details and an overview of our business model. We will also invite you to schedule an initial conversation.
Our initial conversation will focus on learning about you and your goals, sharing more about EarthWise Pet, and giving you an opportunity to ask some questions.
If we both feel we’d be a good fit, we will send you a franchise application. The application is similar in scope to a mortgage pre-qualification. We use it to protect the brand and franchisees’ investments by conducting due diligence on potential franchise partners.
If you are conditionally approved, we will share the Franchise Disclosure Document (FDD) with you. This is a legal document that outlines the main components of the franchise agreement.
We will conduct Area Market Research (AMR) to determine if your desired territory is viable.
If the AMR review is favorable, an EarthWise executive will visit you for a final market verification and formal approval.
Once you have been formally approved, the franchise agreement is prepared and executed.
