Wondering how to open a Jack in the Box franchise? We’ve consolidated the process of approving new franchisees and helping them get their doors open. Here, learn about a few key steps in that process.
Step 1: Pre-Qualification
When you reach out to us, we’ll spend some time getting to know you. We’re looking with franchisees who either have quick-service restaurant experience or can partner with someone who does. Around this time, we’ll provide you with a copy of our Franchise Disclosure Document so you can get the details on the investment and review the fine print for yourself.
Step 2: Franchise Qualification Process
Once you’ve made it past the pre-qualification stage, you’ll take part in an in-depth competency interview. We’ll want to get the details on your background, experience, and finances to ensure you’re well-prepared to invest. During this stage, you’ll also enjoy a Jack in the Box restaurant preview.
Step 3: Due Diligence
We’ll work together to iron out the details, ensuring you have a strong plan of action for your new Jack in the Box franchise. We’ll review documents such as tax returns, real estate information, and your business plan to verify that everything is in place to get started.
Step 4: Approval
To secure your final approval, you’ll take part in a panel interview with members of our leadership team. They’ll want to know about your goals and reasons for choosing Jack in the Box. This interview is a great opportunity for you to learn about our company culture and ask any questions you may have as well.
Once you’ve received their seal of approval, you’ll get started on our 10-week initial training program to learn the ins and outs of running your Jack in the Box franchise.
