  • And more!

Should you need financing assistance, Graze Craze can help! We’ll help you find the best option for financing, so you don’t have to do the research all by yourself. We’ll look at all different financing options, as there are a variety of programs available to fund your investment. Some of the options we suggest exploring include bank loans, SBA loans, retirement funds, small business credit cards, and alternative financing.

The franchising process is simple! Reach out to us, and we’ll answer any questions you have and learn more about you. Then we’ll have a meeting to discuss the business model and how the franchise operates. Next, you’ll be provided with  a copy of our Franchise Disclosure Document (FDD) to review and learn more details about our opportunity. After your review, we’ll have you fill out a personal profile,  then attend Discovery Day, where you’ll visit our headquarters and meet our leadership team. Finally, you’ll put down the initial deposit.

Then, you’ll be presented with your franchise agreement. Once this is signed, we can get started establishing your location while you take part in our comprehensive training program. Finally, you’ll have your grand opening where you open your doors and start your business!

Graze Craze is there for you every step of the way to provide you with support as you grow.
