Are you ready to be surrounded at work by fun and smiles? If you’d like to be part of a rapidly growing, children’s service and entertainment industry franchise, we want to hear from you!
From start to finish, you’ll be supported every step of the way to franchise ownership. While each situation varies, the Steps to Ownership will provide you with action items to take toward owning and operating your first Scooter’s Jungle franchise.
Step One – Request the Scooter’s Jungle Franchise Information Packet
Review our FAQs, and submit the inquiry form online or call 949.546.9951 to receive the information packet and complete the qualification form. Our Director of Franchise Development will contact you to discuss your area of interest, review the basics of franchise ownership and answer your questions. After initial discussions, you will receive the franchisee application.
Step Two – Submit Financial and Background Information
After reviewing the FDD, you will submit the requested financial and background information to become qualified. Our Director of Franchise Development will review your application and discuss it with you.
Step Three – Receive the full Scooter’s Jungle Franchise Disclosure Document (FDD)
Once you have submitted your application, Scooter’s Jungle will send you the FDD, which details our responsibilities as franchise partners and highlights the franchise agreement. Required by law, this document should be reviewed thoroughly and you should ask any questions you may have at this time.
Step Four – Finalize Trade Area and Receive Franchise Agreement
After attending Discovery Day, the Director of Franchise Development will finalize your trade area for a single-unit agreement or the territory for a multi- unit agreement. You will receive a franchise agreement for your review and signature. After reading the agreement thoroughly, you will return the signed franchise agreement along with your initial franchise fee to Scooter’s Jungle.
Step Five – Attend Scooter’s Jungle Discovery Day
Upon approval of your initial application package, you will be invited to attend Discovery Day at Scooter’s Jungle headquarters in Aliso Viejo, CA where you will meet representatives from each department who will be supporting you as a franchise owner, including operations, marketing, purchasing and real estate. You will also visit Scooter’s Jungle entertainment centers to learn more about how they operate.
Discovery Day provides both you and the Scooter’s Jungle executive team the opportunity to learn more about each other and decide if there is a mutual fit before you are awarded a franchise. Your time and investment in this step of the process is critical to making a sound decision.
Step Six – Welcome to the Scooter’s Jungle Community!
Upon receipt of the signed franchise agreement and initial franchise fee, Scooter’s Jungle will award to you a franchise. If you do not already have a commercial real estate broker, you will be introduced to one who can assist you in finding and securing potential locations for your Scooter’s Jungle store.
Step Seven – Obtain Site Approval, Begin Permitting and Construction, and Hire Staff
Once the executive team has approved your new Scooter’s Jungle site, you will hire an architect to create construction drawings that meet your city or municipality building codes. Permitting times vary in each city and area, but generally approvals are received within 60 to 90 days. You will also hire a general contractor to begin the construction of your new children’s service industry franchise, and begin recruiting and hiring staff members for your new business.
Step Eight – Plan Grand Opening and Attend Jungle University
Once construction is underway, a Scooter’s Jungle marketing representative will assist you with Grand Opening marketing plans and activities. You and up to four members of your new staff will attend the Jungle University at the Scooter’s Jungle flagship center in Aliso Viejo, CA.
Step Nine – Grand Opening
You and your Scooter’s Jungle marketing representative will finalize and execute your Grand Opening. That day, certified trainers will be on-site to assist with last-minute details, and to answer staff and customer questions.
Step Ten – Welcome!
Congratulations – your new Scooter’s Jungle franchise is ready for business. Welcome to the Scooter’s Jungle community!
