It’s no surprise that opening a Moxie Blowdry & Beauty Bar® takes time and work. That’s why we provide you with a talented support team and a highly efficient opening process. On average, it could take six to eight months from the time you begin your journey until the day you open your doors. Below is an outline of the various steps you will encounter along the way.
Step 1: Complete Your Franchise Application
Start the process today by submitting a completed Moxie franchise application via online (link), mail or fax. A representative will review and respond to your submitted application and send you our Franchise Disclosure Document (FDD).
Step 2: Receive a Franchise Disclosure Document
Once you submit an application, a Moxie representative will review and respond to you directly and send over our Franchise Disclosure Document. The Franchise Disclosure Document (FDD) explains the Moxie Blowdry & Beauty Bar® franchise in detail and includes a sample franchise agreement. After we receive your signed acknowledgement receipt of the FDD, you can begin the discovery process of owning your own Moxie Blowdry & Beauty Bar®
Step 3: Complete Discovery and Sign Your Franchise Agreement
Moxie’s Franchise Development team will assist you with the research and further learning opportunities needed when making this type of commitment. Conversations with your designated Moxie representative will be essential to your franchise due diligence. Validation calls to franchisees and visiting existing Moxie Salons will also be beneficial. Upon mutual approval to move forward as a new franchise owner, you will need to give us a non-refundable $5,000.00 deposit for us to generate the Franchise Agreement, and then you’ll sign the franchise agreement and pay the balance of $30,000.00. At this time you will also pay your Grand Opening Fee.
Step 4: Secure Your Moxie Franchise Location
Finding a premier location for your business is essential. With help from a Moxie Representative, an authorized broker or your designated regional Moxie representative, we provide assistance in finding and selecting a great location for your Moxie Blowdry & Beauty Bar®. We are with you every step of the way!
Step 5: Building & Outfit Your Moxie
With the help of your designated Moxie design representative, the build-out process begins, including site plans and design specifications. Moxie has worked with industry leaders to design your Salon ensuring that each location matches the established brand identity. Your designated Moxie representative will help you with your official construction documents, including mechanical, plumbing and electric plans, as well as assist with any build-out/design questions you or your contractor may have.
Step 6: Establish a Marketing Plan
You must conduct a Grand Opening Advertising program during the period commencing one month before opening and during three months after opening. When you sign your Franchise Agreement, you will pay $10,000 to Moxie BBB Brand Building Fund LLC to cover the cost of implementing a Grand Opening Advertising program of promotion and advertising for you. If you want to plan any additional grand opening advertising, we must approve it before you conduct it.
