Next Steps to TruBlue Ownership

Ready to bring the TruBlue franchise to your community?

Once you submit your information, you will receive an email with a link to the free TruBlue Franchise Report, which will give you detailed information about our brand, as well as the requirements to franchise with TruBlue. After that, here’s what you can expect:

Introductory Phone Call

Within one business day or sooner, a member of the TruBlue franchising staff will reach out to you by phone. The first call usually lasts about 20 minutes, which gives us a chance to introduce ourselves to one another and address initial questions.

During this call, you can ask questions about operating a TruBlue franchise, and we’ll inquire about why you think you’d be a good fit for our franchise family. Over time, we will want to know about your dreams of becoming a business owner, your lifestyle and financial goals as an owner, and any initial concerns or fears you may have. We’ll also go over some of the basic qualifications to become a franchisee and outline what you can expect as you move through the initial franchise phase towards eventual ownership. Our goal is not to sell a franchise, it’s to award a franchise to the best qualified candidate in a given city who is a good fit for us and we’re a good fit for them and their goals. After all, we are going into a long-term partnership so both parties want to make a smart decision and we will honestly guide you through that decision-making process.

Educational Phone Calls

After you’ve completed the initial phone call, we’ll conduct a series of educational calls in which we unpack various aspects of the TruBlue proven business model, our operating and marketing systems, and our training and support systems. We will also conduct additional discovery about you and your ability to effectively own and run a franchise location, and if the fit looks good for both of us, we’ll explore the financial qualifications you must have to meet our requirements. At some point during this process, you’ll fill out a simple Franchise Application (Request for Consideration), including financial disclosures, which will trigger the next phase of the process.

Due Diligence Phase

While we continue educating you about the business, including an in-depth explanation of our latest Franchise Disclosure Document, we’ll continue to conduct due diligence to ensure your information is accurate and provides everything we’ll need to make the final determination about your TruBlue territory. We’ll also set up time for you to spend with senior management within our organization so that they can get to know you.

We’ll also help you apply for any financing you may need in order to open up your TruBlue franchise location. Once we’ve completed our due diligence procedures, we’ll advance you to the next phase – meeting the team.

Corporate Visit

If we are confident there is a good fit for you and for us, we’ll invite you to an official corporate visit. You will travel to our Corporate Office in Cincinnati, Ohio, where you’ll meet with the TruBlue management team, our Co-Founder, and support personnel. The evening before, we will treat you to dinner in a relaxed atmosphere with some of our team members and other possible candidates so we all get to know each other better. Next day, during the discovery day, you’ll also become more familiar with our team, our marketing and operating systems, and the training, on-going coaching, and support you will receive as a TruBlue franchisee. Once the discovery day has concluded, you will have time to reflect, consider your options and The Winner’s Circle program, and ultimately determine if TruBlue is the right business opportunity for you to achieve your lifestyle and financial goals. To determine if this is the right vehicle for you to take control of your future and gain more life…the possibility of greater flexibility, financial success, purpose, satisfaction, and freedom.

Signing the Agreement

Once we’ve completed these initial steps, you’ll sign your Franchise Agreement, pay your initial deposit and franchise fee, and then it’s off to the races, beginning with our 90-day Secret to Success marketing plan.

From the time you sign a franchise agreement with TruBlue Franchise, we estimate that your location can be open in as little as ten weeks.

To get started, please contact us to request information about the TruBlue franchise opportunity.

We are looking forward to hearing from you and are excited that you’re interested in joining the dynamic TruBlue brand as we rapidly expand across the nation.
