STEPS TO OWNING A CELEBRITY INK
Inital Enquiry & intro call
Once you submit an enquiry, the first step is to set-up an introduction call with our CEO, Andrew McCulloch and the franchising team.
This is an informal meeting where you’ll get the chance to ask us questions about the franchising process, the Celebrity Ink business model and the support we offer if you were to come onboard.
It’s also a chance for us to get to know you, your background, and your goals coming into Celebrity Ink. We want to make sure you’re the perfect fit for Celebrity Ink as much as you want to know that we’re the right fit for you.
Before we start working on formal documentation and agreements, we believe in providing prospective franchise partners with all the information they need to invest in Celebrity Ink.
We’ll set-up a meeting to present a tailored proposal about the franchise location/s you’re interested in, as well as provide you with an in-depth overview into the Celebrity Ink business model and detailed information about your initial investment costs, ongoing financial obligations and operational requirements of owning a Celebrity Ink franchisee.
It also provides the opportunity for you to ask in-depth questions about your investment options.
application process & approval
At this stage you’ll know everything about us. You like what you’ve heard and you’re committed to owning your very own Celebrity Ink tattoo studio.
We’ll provide you with a formal franchise application and a Non-Disclosure agreement to complete at this stage. Once you complete these our CEO and franchising team will formally review your suitability as a franchisee at Celebrity Ink.
We take the application process seriously and carefully consider each application we receive. We’re looking for individuals who share our passion for the industry, are driven to succeed, and are committed to upholding our brand values. We’ll work with you throughout the application process to ensure that you have all the information you need and that we fully understand your goals and objectives as a potential franchisee.
Once we’ve reviewed your application, we’ll let you know if you’ve been approved and can move forward with the franchising process.
due Diligence & legals
As you move through the business end of the franchising process, we want you to feel confident and secure in your investment decision before you sign on the dotted line. We’ll provide you with top level information about the Celebrity Ink business, our financials and we’ll also outline your legal obligations.
As we work together during this phase, we’ll also conduct some essential legal checks to protect both you and our brand. This includes a thorough police and credit check. You can rest assured that we are dedicated to the safety and security of our franchisees, and these checks are just one way we like to ensure a successful and prosperous long-term partnership.
While you’re conducting your due diligence, our franchising team will be hard at work negotiating the lease for your chosen site. We want to ensure that we’re ready to hit the ground running once the agreement is signed.
ONBOARDING & TRAINING
To make sure you’re ready to run your very own Celebrity Ink tattoo studio you’ll get some time with the experts at Celebrity Ink HQ.
We’ll setup workshops with all functions of the business including operations, marketing and technology before you get in studio. This intensive onboarding week will help ensure you have all the knowledge and resources to hit the ground running in your new studio.
If you have appointed a studio manager, we’ll also get them involved in the onboarding process.
As recruitment of your Ink Crew is extremely important our operations team ensures this process is well and truly underway at this stage of your franchise journey.
It’s grand opening day! This is where the fun really starts and we’re going to announce your studio to the world with a bang!
The studio fit-out will be on-point, your artists will be itching to start tattooing, and your Ink Crew trained up ready to go.
Our marketing team will have a full grand opening event planned for your studio and word will have travelled around the area about your new studio. Our support team will be there to assist with your first week of opening.
