Franchising: Training & Support

Your success is our success. We strongly believe in the value of preparation, regular training, and ongoing support. Our training program and ongoing mentorship helps new and existing franchisees manage their own Leo&Lucky’s more successfully. Here are some examples:

Pre Open / Grand Open

Financing

  • When requested, Leo&Lucky’s will introduce you to financial institutions who may help you with financing along with the possible support of the Small Business Association. We understand this process can be intimidating, and we are happy to offer our guidance along the way.

Site selection and lease negotiation

  • Site selection is one of the most important details when opening a retail location. We will help assess local demographics, competition, traffic patterns, and other key factors.
  • Our team will help assist you through the process of lease negotiation.

Design, layout, construction

  • Leo&Lucky’s experienced architect, design, construction, and equipment teams are ready to help transform your new location into a space that will allow for positive flow, efficient use, “warm vibe,” and customer engagement.

Product sourcing and merchandising

  • Take advantage of our experience, established relationships, and negotiating skills to limit mistakes, improve gross margin, and increase revenue.
  • Reduce your time commitment and risk. Let us help you put the right products on your shelves from the start.

Staffing

  • Your employees are the face of your business and one of your most important investments. We will share our insights and wisdom on how to select the right players for your team, help train them on the products and proper care of your customers, and show you how to promote a positive culture.

Marketing

  • The only thing worse than not advertising is wasteful spending. Our marketing team will walk you through the process of promoting your new venture, by tailoring our effective and efficient marketing strategy to suit your specific location.

Ongoing Support
