Investing in a Lenard's franchise gives you the benefit of a system that has been developed, refined, and proven over 24 years. New Lenard's Franchise Owners have the opportunity to hit the ground running from day one with the benefit of industry-leading training, field support staff, marketing programs, a proven profit model and a product range that can't be matched!
Our Franchise Development Team are all about putting the right people together with the right sites to build the Lenard's system one fantastic store at a time. More stores means more positive exposure for the brand, which means better business for all Franchise Owners.
The Right People: Successful Franchise Owners have a great attitude, personality and the motivation to make a go of it. Because we want Franchise Owners who can achieve success with the Lenard's business, we're selective in the enquiries that we promote through the system.
The Right Info: We want to know that you've got the FULL story. That's why we encourage you to call any of our current Franchise Owners to get their take on the business. You'll also need to spend a couple of days in a Lenard's store to ensure that this is really for you.
The Right Site: Securing the right site is a key component of your future success. Lenard's site selection criteria has been fine-tuned over the years. We work with new Franchise Owners in site selection with relevant foot traffic, exposure and store front impact to maximise your opportunity.
The Right Start: The Franchise Development Team guide you through the early stages ensuring that you know what to expect every step of the way. We provide you with all the information to make an informed decision and the one that is right for you.
Complete the enquiry form and deed of confidentiality. This is needed so that we can send you all the information you need on the Lenard's system. This includes financial benchmarking data for stores in your state and a sample Franchise Agreement for you to start reviewing the terms and conditions associated with the business.
We encourage you to get in touch with our existing Franchise Owners. Hearing what they have to say about their experience as a Lenard's Franchise Owner – the good and the bad – will help you in your own decision making.
All prospective Franchise Owners spend two days in a Lenard's store early in the process. We like to do this as it allows you to experience what it's like being a Lenard's Franchise Owner first-hand, share in their knowledge, and make sure it's the life for you!
Banks familiar with the Lenard's system can lend up to 50% of your investment against the strength of the Lenard's brand alone, with the balance secure against other collateral, such as equity in your home. This is a significant advantage for prospective Lenard's Franchise Owners as it provides more and improved finance options for your business investment.
When both parties are satisfied with the negotiated terms for the agreement you are sent a letter of offer which needs your signed acceptance. For the purchase of an existing Lenard's store a contract with the current Franchise Owner is signed at this point and sent to Lenard's for approval.
With a signed letter of offer or contract you are then supplied with final Disclosure Documents and a Franchise Agreement to be signed (sample copies having been supplied earlier in Step 1).
Now it's time to get training. Lenard's six week new Franchise Owner training program includes both practical in-store training at our training store, as well as training in the Lenard's system and the running of a profitable Lenard's store from our National Support Office in Brisbane.
When the big day arrives you'll have Lenard's store opening support including a marketing launch campaign and two weeks of in-store support from your Lenard's Business Coach.
