What happens after I fill out a form on this site?
When you fill out a form, you will receive an email with a link to our free franchise report, a detailed eBook that explains our business model, our growth strategy, industry statistics, and some of the things that make Togo’s unique.
You should also expect a call from us to follow up as soon as possible. It’s a quick call — usually about five minutes — that gives us a chance to introduce ourselves, learn a little about you, and answer a few questions. From there, we’ll schedule a time to provide you with in-depth information about the brand and to learn more about you and your goals.
We will also give you access to an online portal where you can learn more about Togo’s, the market opportunity, our people, and our systems. We expect you to have plenty of follow-up questions, and we’ll schedule calls to go over the various parts of the business in-depth.
During this learning process, we will also ask you to fill out a franchise application. Once that’s complete, you’ll receive a copy of our Franchise Disclosure Document. If you’ve never seen an FDD, here’s what you need to know: It’s a large legal document that defines the relationship between franchisee and franchisor and outlines the obligations of each side. The structure of the document is mandated by the Federal Trade Commission, and it can take some effort to understand all the nuances of the document. We will go over the FDD with you and will answer your questions. We also advise you to review the document carefully with an accountant or attorney who specializes in franchise law.
Once you have completed our online discovery process and reviewed the FDD, you will then be invited to visit Togo’s headquarters for a Discovery Day meeting. This is a chance to meet face-to-face with the executive team that leads Togo’s, get to know them, ask any additional questions, and start building relationships. If everything goes well and there is mutual interest in the partnership, we’ll offer you a franchisee agreement.
Once signed, we will start working with you to identify sites and begin your training. Typically, your restaurant will be open in nine to 12 months.
