Franchise Process

Fill out a form on the website to let us know you are interested in learning more about BrainStorm. We will contact you to introduce ourselves and, most importantly, to get to know you. We have a conversation regarding your interest in a BrainStorm franchise, answering your initial questions about the business model, the investment requirements and the franchise selection criteria.

After our initial phone call, we will send you a Request for Consideration (RFC), which is a preliminary financial qualification and eligibility requirement for ongoing consideration. By completing this document, you are expressing your interest in owning a franchise and becoming part of our network, but you are under no obligation.

From there, we will host a web conference to provide an in-depth look at our franchise business model, discuss our corporate training and the demand for STEM Education services, and we will discuss your goals and answer any additional questions you may have.

By this point, you are knowledgeable about the BrainStorm franchise model and have made your decision to franchise with us. Your visit to our corporate offices in Irvine, California, for a one-on-one Discovery Day with the corporate team is the day that we welcome you into the BrainStorm family. After signing the franchise agreement on Discovery Day, we schedule training and start you on the path to launching your business!

Once you’ve been approved and are all set and ready to go, simply request and execute our Franchise Agreement and the franchise is yours! Once your site has been approved by our facilities manager, you will begin building your center to BrainStorm specifications.

You will be trained to setup and run your new business. Your initial training comprises of: business operations and curriculum training at the corporate HQ and BrainStorm center in Irvine, CA which includes co-development of a customized go-to market plan. We may offer virtual training options for franchisees who are unable to travel.
