When looking to start your own CRATE Franchise there can be many questions. In this section we hope to answer some of the more frequently asked questions that you may have.
Please be aware that CFS generally requires franchisees to have 150% of the estimated investment listed in Item 7 in liquid assets.
CFS franchisees benefit from extensive franchisor support, including but not limited to use of the CRATE brand, marketing assistance, social media and website administration, call center lead screening, extensive training and ongoing support.
Well, it’s taken three years of dedicated work along with a significant financial commitment to build the CRATE system. Not that you couldn’t do this yourself, but we like to think spending 3-5 years running the system we’ve created would be a better investment than building the system on your own from scratch.
Additionally, as the CRATE system grows, in both number of franchisees and brand recognition, the shared benefit of marketing campaigns, investment in additional products and services as well as the support of a community will only increase over time.
A few reasons. First, we’re a hungry, new player in the home improvement franchising space. Most of our competitors have been in business for dozens of years and, while they have more experience, it’s pretty clear their brand collateral, marketing strategies and the like are tired and dated.
Second, you’ll be working directly with the CFS founders during your discovery, training and launch phases. They will be SIGNIFICANTLY invested in your success as it’s critical the initial CRATE franchisees not only survive but thrive. This type of access to the founders might be hard to come by in the more antiquated competing systems.
Lastly, CFS offers an amazing lead generation and call-center service that is unmatched in the industry, allowing you to focus on signing deals and satisfying customers.
