Each location is different, depending on a variety of factors. However, it typically takes approximately 6-8 months from signing the franchise agreement to opening day at your Gator Outfitters store.
5.What kind of training can I expect as a franchisee?
All new franchisees participate in a 7 week training program. This consists of 3 weeks of training and 4 weeks of real life management experience by way of our apprenticeship program in a franchised location. Once completed, franchisees receive regular updates to their training, including on site reviews.
