Steps to Success with PJ’s

Once you receive the brochure, a Franchise Development Coordinator will contact you within 24 hours to provide you with an overview of the evaluation process and discuss the next step.

  1. Introduction Call & Disclosure

You will have an introductory call with a Franchise Executive to learn more about the opportunity and go over any initial questions you may have. After the call, you will be provided with a copy of our Franchise Disclosure Document (FDD) for your review.

  1. Discovery Process

Review of the PJ’s FDD, your Franchise Executive will guide you through a series of agenda-specific calls to discuss, in detail, topics such as real estate, design and construction, training, ongoing support, marketing, products, and operations. As you are going through these calls, you may also want to connect with existing PJ’s owners to ask specific questions and learn about their experience as a franchisee.

  1. PJ's Join the Team Day

After the PJ’s discovery process and you are ready to become a franchisee, we will invite you to attend Join the Team Day. During Join the Team Day, you will tour the PJ’s Coffee Roasting Facility, visit PJ’s locations, and meet the teams that support our franchisees.

If the day results in a positive experience for both parties and you are approved as our newest franchisee, we will sign the franchise agreement and officially welcome you to the PJ’s Family.

Always by Your Side

Once you’ve signed the franchise agreement, the development process will begin and you will be on your way to being a proud coffee shop franchise owner! We support our franchisees throughout the opening process and beyond. Our Development team will aid in the store opening process, assisting with finance, real estate, design, construction. Our Marketing and Operations team will help you prepare for the launch of your business, assisting with grand opening marketing execution, training and pre-opening preparations.
