We refer to our process as a “matching process” because both parties need to get to know one another over a period of time in order to decide if there’s a “match”. The Soccer Pups business model is a fun and exciting opportunity, but it’s not right for everyone, nor is everyone right for it. Our 7-step matching process is key for a successful, long-term partnership.
After you have filled out the Let’s Get Acquainted form, a representative will schedule a “Get Acquainted” telephone call. Based on our conversation – we mutually will determine if we would like to speak again so that we may provide you with additional information, including:
A) The Soccer Pups concept
B) Business operations, location, demographics
C) Start-up costs
Following receipt of your in-depth “Request for Consideration” AND preliminary approval, we will schedule a concept compatibility call.
Following the completion of our initial phone call and “Request For Consideration” form, we will schedule a “Concept Compatibility” call. This call will begin with a courtesy invitation for your spouse or supportive decision maker. During this 30-45 minute call, we will focus on Soccer Pups’s core values and vision. Based on our conversation – we will mutually determine if our core values align.
During this 30-45 minute teleconference call, our team will collaborate to deliver a complete overview of all marketing, training and support programs. Four to 15 days prior to attending Discovery Day, we will mail or email the Franchise Disclosure Document.
