The Franchise Process

If you are interested in learning more about becoming a Central Bark franchise owner, follow these easy steps.

Step 1:

Call us at 1.866.799.2275

Step 2:

We will usually respond to your inquiry during the same business day, but ALWAYS within 24 hours. Our franchise development specialist will begin the initial qualification process with you to help both parties determine if there is an initial match. Once qualified, our franchise development specialist will be happy answer any of your more immediate questions and explain the Franchise Screening and Discovery process in more detail.

Step 3:

Fill out a short Central Bark Franchise Information Request form. Upon receipt, your franchise development specialist will contact you to begin the Franchise Screening and Discovery Process. The process can last several weeks.

Step 4:

Once you’ve completed the qualification process, you will receive Central Bark’s Franchise Disclosure Documents for your review.

Step 5:

Once you’ve read the documents and completed your franchisee calls, your file will be reviewed by Central Bark management and, if acceptable, an executive phone interview will be scheduled between you and the principals of Central Bark’s management team. At this point, additional background, criminal and credit checks will be performed as well.

Step 6:

If you pass the interview, you will be invited to one of Central Bark’s Franchise Candidate Discovery Days. Now it is time to come out and see us first hand. At our Discovery Day we visit several different facilities. This is also your opportunity to talk to Central Bark franchisees directly and ask them questions about what it’s like to be a part of the Central Bark family.

Step 7:

Congratulations! You made it. You’ve been awarded a Central Bark Franchise in your area! With your franchise developer, execute the documents, sign them, remit your deposit and begin your journey toward business ownership and, more importantly, towards a work life filled with meaning, passion and independence!
