The Franchisee Process

Should you be interested in owning a franchisee business of any of our brands, send an enquiry to info@stgroup.net.au. In return you will receive an information pack of specific brand, containing a FAQ and franchise application form that will have to be completed. The franchise application form is non-binding as it functions to let us understand what you seek from the brand and try to tailor-fit opportunities to your needs.
A meeting will be organized for us to meet, naturally to know you better and for you to understand what we are all about! It would be a chance for us to answer any queries or lay down any concerns you may have. Before proceeding further, there will be a process to determine if we are a good fit with one another.
We will then review on business plan and financial model. At the same time, we will provide a copy of Expression of Interest (EOI) form for your to complete.
Completed EOI to be returned to us with deposit paid. If it happens that the agreement falls through, you will have your deposit back, so there nothing you should be worry about.

Some location options will be provided to you for consideration, depending on availability and suitability of a site.

Lease negotiations will be initiated; agreements will be signed; a deposit will be paid.

From this point forward, all relevant parties will work hand-in-hand to open a new and exciting outlet! The project management team will handle the nitty-gritties, so sit back and enjoy the process.
An intensive training course will be provided for at least one month prior to outlet opening. The training will equip you and your team with all necessary skills and knowledge to be able to operate the outlet efficiently and effectively.
In due time when all components of the project come together, congratulations. The outlet will begin trading and you are officially running your own outlet. However, no worries as we will be there to provide necessary support and will continue to do so to ensure high standards are met, the business is operated proficiently, and most importantly consistent customer dining experience.
