The Timeline

Once you have decided to get started as a Hot Dog on a Stick master franchisee, the process can begin! It is important for us to comply with all international laws regarding franchising, so we will spend considerable time getting acquainted with the laws and regulations in your territory. In our experience, the legal process typically takes 30-60 days on average, then the Master Franchisee onboarding process can begin! Once the contract is in place, you will receive a Market Launch plan that maps out the activities that will take place from your brand training to opening day. During the Market Launch phase, we will work with you to track the key milestones such as training, local sourcing, identifying the first site, and purchasing food and equipment. While each new market launch is different, we find that most new markets open within six to twelve months of the contract execution.
