Becoming a Franchisee
Steps to owning your own business.
Request a Franchise Information Package
Submit a request from this site or call 1-800-438-7623 to request a Franchise Information Package. Review the information and if you decide to proceed, fill out the Franchise Qualification Questionnaire found in the information package and submit it as a preliminary review of your qualifications to become a franchisee. Submit a request for information here:
Review the FDD
We will review your questionnaire and if you preliminarily qualify, you will receive our Franchise Disclosure Document (FDD). The FDD contains more specific information about Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory, a Franchise Agreement, financial statements and a list of franchisees you may contact. Review the FDD with your attorney or accountant and determine if the opportunity is compatible with your goals and financial capability.
Call if you have questions
Call the Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory Franchise Sales Managers at 1-800-438-7623 with any questions you or your advisors may have. If you are ready to continue in the process, you will need to complete the detailed Financial Statement included with the FDD and mail the form and the 2 signed pages to us for further evaluation.
Prepare the Franchise Agreement
Next, we will prepare the Franchise Agreement. This form has been prepared in compliance with federal and state regulations governing franchise contracts, which require a uniform agreement for each franchisee.
Secure a store location
At your request, we will help you in your search for a suitable location.
Begin store design and construction
The Design and Construction department provides plans for your store, and then the construction process can begin. Our Franchise Development Manager stays in contact with you throughout the design and construction process.
Attend our training program
Within two months prior to opening, you will attend our Chocolate University, a comprehensive seven-day training program in Durango, Colorado. You will learn in a classroom setting and by "hands on" experience in our retail store. Your visit will give you the full flavor of the Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory experience!
Open your new store
Now you are ready to open the doors to your new Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory shop! A Field Team member will be there to assist you for several days as you go through the opening process.
