The first step in our process is submitting a request for more information. The request for more information simply requires that you submit your contact info so that we can get in touch with you. When we receive your request, a member of our team will send you introductory materials and set up a meeting with our franchise development experts.
2. Meet with Franchise Development Team
Your meeting with the franchise development team is your first introduction to our brand. During this meeting, we will ask you some basic questions about you to determine if you are a good fit for our brand. Making good matches is important to us, so we like to learn as much about you as possible including:
- Your background
- Your goals as a franchisee

Take the opportunity in this meeting to ask questions of your own about our brand and processes. Once you have the answers to your lingering questions, you are ready to submit a franchise application.

Ours is a standard franchise application, asking in-depth questions about you to further determine your eligibility to be a Supporting Strategies franchisee. The goal of the application is to get detailed information about you and any partners who may be going into business with you (like a spouse or business partner).

The Franchise Disclosure Document, or FDD, is an important document that all our applicants must read. In order to have a full understanding of our bookkeeping franchise opportunities, read through and study the FDD. Financial information, contract details, and many more details are included in this important document; this information gives you a full understanding of our brand, so that you are ready to sign the franchise agreement.

Once your application has been approved and you have read the FDD, you are ready to sign the franchise agreement! This is an exciting step in the process, and signing the agreement marks the moment you become a Supporting Strategies franchisee. After you sign the franchise agreement, it is time to get started building up your business. The first step is to attend training.
