SuperGreen Solutions FAQ
Before opening any kind of franchise, it is important to ask plenty of questions. If you are considering a foray into the green industry, asking questions is especially important. While the green industry is growing with ever-increasing demand for products and services, franchises in the field are new. We try to make it easy for you to find answers to your questions as you consider plunging into this exciting field.
I understand you offer both a home-based and a retail location option. In the case of the retail location option, what does a store look like inside?
Why should I franchise instead of starting my own green business?
Franchises start off with a strong supporting network and a formula that has been tested, whereas the owners of new non-franchise businesses must come up with all systems and work hard to build a brand reputation. In a field that is as new as the green or sustainable energy industry, franchisees can start off with a real competitive advantage. Franchisees not only start off with a trusted name, they start with the purchasing power and know-how provided by industry experts.
What makes the SuperGreen Solutions concept special?
SuperGreen Solutions is one of few businesses that offer to help businesses “go green.” SuperGreen Solutions concepts, products, and services are well organized and presented in an easy-to-understand format. Competitors who offer green solutions often lack specialization in the industry, so the concepts are not presented as well. The SuperGreen Solutions business model was carefully thought out to allow the company plenty of room to grow as the industry develops and changes.
How much will it cost to open a SuperGreen Solutions franchise?
New SuperGreen Solutions franchisees should expect to spend between $60,000 and $65,000 for the non-showroom model to get the store off the ground. Franchisees must pay $49,500 franchise fee and show $50,000 in liquid assets. Real estate costs, payroll costs, marketing, and equipment costs must also be figured in. Actual costs may vary depending on the location and specific needs for opening a new location.
Is financing available for franchisees?
Franchisees must come up with the franchise fee and show an adequate amount of liquid assets, but financing is available for qualified franchisees beyond those figures. If franchisees do not qualify to receive financial assistance from SuperGreen Solutions or United Franchise Group, a representative may be able to assist with exploring third-party options.
Do I have to have experience in the green industry to get started?
SuperGreen Solutions franchisees do not have to have experience in the green industry or franchise industry to get started. United Franchise Group provides business training and tested systems to help franchisees become successful. SuperGreen Solutions provides franchisees with training in the green and sustainable energy fields, while providing ongoing support to keep franchisees up to date, competitive, and comfortable.
