Here is where we answer all your frequently asked franchise questions and show you what Complete Weddings + Events is all about. We look forward to helping you join our team and become a franchise owner!
No. In fact, we prefer our owners not to be working IN their business so they can work ON their business. We cover all the necessary tools and considerations you need to hire and train your staff. As your support team, we’ll also help you find the right people by screening potential hires and even assist in conducting your first interviews.
We have access to a wedding report that shows the average price that couples pay for each service. This report also breaks down the total paid for each wedding and how many weddings were conducted each year in your territory. As part of your training, we’ll help you set up a base price for all of your services.
The initial investment ranges from $30,000 to $60,000 based on population in your territory. This price also includes the necessary equipment for your first year and $5,000 in an operating account.
The beauty of this business and what makes it a low-cost startup is the fact that you can run it from your home for the first few years. We have certain milestones based on gross revenue that determine when you’re ready for a storefront. When that time comes, the support office helps their franchisees with space, location décor, and everything in between.
A manager can be assigned and hired to run the business as long as that person completes the training with the owner.
We like to see new franchise owners grow one market at a time. If you’re interested in multiple territories, we can discuss benchmarks to hit before purchasing more than one territory.
Territories are generally broken up by counties surrounding a metro area of interest. The only exceptions would be if the metro is big enough to split up (e.g. Chicago).
