An Established Franchise with a Flexible Business Model
Located in airports, office parks and strip malls; BG Urban Cafés operate in a variety of environments with menu options to satisfy every customer. The flexibility reflected in the locations and menu is also true in the business models for franchise investors large and small. Whether you’re interested in being the owner operator of a single store or looking to develop multiple units, BG Urban Café has a plan for long term success.
Though each scenario is unique, if you are like any of the thousands of franchisees our management team has worked with over the last thirty years, you fall into one of three categories:
The BG Urban Cafe offers programs that fit all of these scenarios.
We encourage you to explore the three reasons that make the BG Urban Cafe concept better than other franchise options.
The Franchise Application Process
Step 1: Complete the online form or download and print the Franchise Application (PDF) and fill it out. Mail it to BG Urban Cafe Franchising at the address on the bottom of the application and/or call 888.642.2233.
Step 2: We will review the application, and if it appears you are qualified, we will provide you with a brochure and schedule a face-to-face or telephone interview. At which time you will receive the Franchise Disclosure Document (FDD). The FDD contains the information about the franchise offer and agreement terms. At the interview we will discuss our system, timetables, your qualifications and expectations, and available locations.
Step 3: If we both agree that a BG Urban Cafe is appropriate for you, we will complete our screening process and notify you of final approval to become a BG Urban Café franchisee.
Step 4: After a minimum of fourteen calendar days from the delivery of the FDD, we will execute a Franchisee Agreement. The Franchise Fee is due upon signing the Franchise Agreement along with any Development Agreement fees.
Step 5: Together we will review information covering site selection, preliminary site information and ultimately, with the help of your broker, select a location. We will prepare work letters and an offer to lease (OTL) for submittal to the owner/landlord as well as preliminary site plans for the design of the store. The OTL will be submitted by you through your real estate broker.
Step 6: We will review and your attorney will negotiate a final lease for the store site with the owner/landlord which will be executed by you.
Step 7: Once the lease has been approved, final architectural plans will be prepared for your particular site under our direction. We will assist you in obtaining all necessary permits and a contractor will then be selected to begin construction.
Step 8: You will be enrolled in our training course in Vancouver, British Columbia or a BG Urban Cafe store near your location and complete training prior to the completion of your store construction.
Step 9: Your staff will then be hired and trained, a Grand Opening will be scheduled and our staff will personally inspect and help you prepare your restaurant for business. We will continue training your staff on the premises before, during and after your Grand Opening.
