Step 1: Explore Hot Spot

We believe in educating our potential franchisees so you can carefully explore this opportunity and make an informed business decision. We encourage you to visit a Hot Spot near you! Our model is unique. We don't "sell" franchises; we "award them" to qualified candidates who we feel will be successful in bringing The Hot Spot brand to life in their communities.

Step 2: Apply for a Franchise

If, after exploring your interest in pursuing a Hot Spot franchise, we ask that you submit an Online Franchise Information Request. This tells us a little bit about who you are and what you are looking for in an opportunity, your market of interest, your timelines, and your plan for financing the investment. If both parties feel it is a fit, your next step will be to submit a Franchise Application that details information about yourself and your financials. This allows us to share more detailed information on our business model.

Step 3: Review Franchise Disclosure Document (FDD)

If you qualify as a candidate, we will present you with the Disclosure Package. This includes a sample franchise agreement, business plan template, and list of franchisees. This is called the disclosure period and marks a time to review the franchise opportunity seriously, research your market, and do your business planning. During the disclosure period, you are encouraged to seek independent guidance from your advisors, lawyer, and accountant and confirm that financing is in place to pursue the investment.

Step 4: Be Your Own Boss

Now that you've done your due diligence and gathered all of this information, it is time to decide if you would like to join The Hot Spot team. If the answer is YES, the final step is to execute the Franchise Agreement and award you a Hot Spot franchise. From here, we will plan your orientation, schedule your training dates and get you ready for action in your own Hot Spot studio!
