Ownership Process

1. Inquiry
Submit an Initial Inquiry so we can learn a bit about your interests and basic qualifications to be a JumpBunch® franchisee.
2. Initial Discussion
The first real step is a discussion on the phone. This is a great way to start to get to know each other, outline our requirements and expectations, as well as answer your key questions. If we both agree it’s worth further exploration, we’ll send out an initial package of information and ask that you complete the Personal Profile.
3. Application
A confidential personality assessment helps reveal your interests and strengths, to help JumpBunch get to know you, and for everyone to confirm you and JumpBunch are a good fit. Once this assessment is completed and we discuss the results, JumpBunch provides the company Franchise Disclosure Document (FDD). If you’re ready to apply to be a JumpBunch Franchise owner, you can complete the Application here.
4. Review the Franchise Disclosure Document (FDD)
The FDD details the agreement between franchisor and franchisee. We take the time to review this document with you to answer any questions you may have.
5. Discovery Day
We’ll meet with you for a day in Charlotte, North Carolina.  This is where our curriculum director resides and is able to arrange a school visit.  At that time, you will observe a class, learn more details about the business and engage in a thorough question and answer session. There is NO payment or commitment required from you at this time. In fact, we want you to take some time before making your final decision. We even send you home from Discovery Day with samples of our marketing materials so you can perform some test marketing by speaking with daycare and other school directors to get a sense of how JumpBunch will be received in your area.
6. Final Consideration
Once everyone agrees we are a good fit for each other, you will receive a draft franchise agreement. You are encouraged to have this agreement reviewed by an attorney and we are available to answer any questions or concerns.
7. Training
You will receive 5 days of training. You begin with a day of remote training using our E-Learning platform as well as phone support and webinar instruction about access and operation of key business systems. Then you spend 3 days back in Charlotte, North Carolina with us one one one covering the areas of Operations, Marketing, and Curriculum. For the final day of training, we arrange a site visit within the first six months so we can provide an appropriate day of hands-on support in your area.
