Do I Need to Have Experience?
NO experience is required! That’s right, you can own your own Granite America® business without any prior granite, stone or hard surface experience. We have comprehensive training programs and operation manuals to help you every step of the way.
Do I Need a Special License to Operate a Granite America®?
Generally there are no governmental regulations that apply to operating a granite and stone sales, fabrication and installation business. Some states may require certain licenses or certifications. *See our Franchise Disclosure Document for details.
What Makes Your Granite and Stone Slabs Different from Anyone Else?
Our granite and stone slabs come from all over the world. All slabs are genuine and cut to our specifications. Granite America® does NOT have any laminate products unlike most granite and stone businesses in the marketplace. We have unique colors. Combine this with the fact that all our granite and stone slabs come from the most sought after quarries and in most circumstances are one-of-a-kind.
How Will I Get My Granite?
We’ll train you on everything you’ll need to know about ordering our unique granite and stone slabs. We have relationships with vendors all over the world. Once you become a Granite America® franchise owner you will have access to every one of our vendors. All materials will be delivered directly to your location. We have streamlined the shipping and delivery process making it easy for you!
Do You Find a Location for Me?
It is your responsibility to find a location for your business within the protected territory we give to you. We will provide you with assistance and guidance and even help to review your lease before you sign it. Also keep in mind, unlike other franchise opportunities there are NO TERRITORY FEES!
Do You Provide Hands On Training?
Absolutely! Depending on the type of model you choose it will either be an eight day or ten day comprehensive training program at one of our corporate locations. Plus we come to your location for an additional seven days of onsite pre-opening/grand-opening assistance. *See our Franchise Disclosure Document for additional details.
What is the Royalty Fee?
Royalties start at 5% for the first year, then slowly increases up to 7% during your franchise term. We are so committed to your success that we want you to concentrate on generating revenue and growing your business. We have kept all royalty fees low.
What is the Franchise Term?
Each term is ten years long. Unlike other franchise opportunities we do NOT charge you any type of renewal fee at the end of your term.
Do I Get a Protected Territory?
Yes, your protected territory will include a population of up to 400,000 households defined by zip code and number of households in that area. *See our Franchise Disclosure Document for additional details.
