Opening a vape franchise is both a daunting prospect if you’re new to the process and don’t know what it entails. Here are some of the answers you’ll need.
We understand that opening a vape franchise is a huge step in your career, and we don’t think anyone should embark upon the journey unless they’re fully informed. Knowing exactly what the franchise process looks like, what kind of support you can expect, how to find a good location, and what makes a successful franchisee, are all valid questions that you should answer before making the investment. Here are some of the most common questions we hear from prospective franchisees, and the answers that will give you a bit of clarity.
What Are You Looking for in a VaporFi Franchisee?
VaporFi is actively seeking highly-qualified individuals to become franchisees. That doesn’t mean you have to be a vape franchise expert, but prior business experience, coupled with personal financial qualifications, individual motivation, and a track record of success, are a huge plus when opening a vape franchise. You should also be self-motivated, comfortable taking initiative, and willing to adapt to the guardrails of a proven franchise system.
What if I Don’t Have Any Retail Experience?
While prior business experience is highly encouraged, you don’t need to be a retail expert when opening a vape franchise. Our VP of Store Operations has over 20 years of experience in retail and is dedicated to ensuring that all awarded franchisees are given helpful resources to run a strong retail business. Our training managers – who are sales experts, business owners, store managers –know the ‘ins, ‘outs, and all the ‘in-betweens” of the vapor industry, and are at your side every step of the way.
How Do I Find the Perfect Location?
Once you officially become a franchisee, our site selection team will guide you through the site selection process and how to find your ideal space for opening a vape franchise. We will work with you to find an approved location, and with the assistance of your legal counsel, you will negotiate the economics of the lease with the landlord. Our goal is always to secure the best possible location at a reasonable rent, while using a geographic information system to identify positive exposure to foot traffic and shopping anchor stores.
What Kind of Training and Support Can I Expect from VaporFi?
A VaporFi franchisee can expect full support through the franchising process, from the application phase, through opening day, and beyond. Initial training consists of five days corporate training in Miami for franchisee owners and up to three employees (preferably management). Later, franchise owners will undergo three days of training visits for soft opening, and another three days for a grand opening. Beyond that, weekly conference calls with trainers are available for first six months. and additional training throughout the year as needed. VaporFi also offers a comprehensive e-learning platform that is accessible 24/7, called Vapor University.
