Starting your own business is a great way to take control of your career and become your own boss. Working independently might seem like a good idea, but franchising is a better way to leverage your investment and reap a host of benefits.
Sales of charcuterie types of packaged snacks and meals reached $378m in 2019, an increase of 6.5% from the previous year. Younger generations are turning to snacking instead of three large meals, changing the consumer landscape to embrace flexible eating. Graze Craze is different from other food franchises and offers a great opportunity to break into this booming industry.
What Is an FDD?
As you research different franchises, you may often come across the term Franchise Disclosure Document or FDD. Wondering what this is? We’re here to help break down what the FDD is and how it can help you in opening a charcuterie board franchise with Graze Craze.
FDDs are a key component of the franchising process. These documents exist to provide prospective franchisees like yourself with all of the pertinent information necessary to make a decision about which franchisor you will work with. Often included in this document is information about the franchisor, franchise system, and agreements.
Within an FDD, there are usually 23 items that are covered. These items include: a brief history of the franchisor and company, litigations, bankruptcy, fees, investments, restrictions, obligations, financing, training and support, territories, trademarks, patents, copyrights, renewal or termination, public figures, financial performance, franchisee locations, financial statements, contracts, and receipts.
It might seem like a lot, but the information contained in the FDD is designed to help you decide if franchising is the right next step for you.
