The Answers to Frequently Asked Questions.
Why a Franchise?
History has clearly shown that franchise businesses have a significantly higher success rate than independent start-up businesses. The initial franchise fee and ongoing royalty fees more-than justify the likely alternative cost of failure from an independent start-up business … or as an independent business having to eventually compete with the franchised business. A Team Blue® franchise has a proven system of operations, and is providing geographic protection and preopening, opening, and ongoing support with one purpose in mind … the financial success of our franchisees. We are teammates with our franchisees … Team Blue®.
