As a Popbar franchisee, you will receive our ongoing support. Here are just a few ways Popbar will help make the transition to your new position a smooth one and make your store one of the most successful and unique gelato shops:

  • REAL ESTATE: Popbar will assist with identifying the best trade areas in the franchisees’ regions. We have a network of brokers which can support you with site selection and finding suitable locations. In addition, lease negotiation and consulting will also be provided.
  • CONSTRUCTION: Franchisees have the chance to choose between using one of Popbar’s approved general contractors, or using their own preferred builder. Popbar's in-house designer will help with the detailing of the floor plan for the shops and will provide a specific layout for your location. We will help communicating with your architect to get franchisees’ shops built efficiently.
  • TRAINING: Prior to store opening, franchisees will be trained in everything Popbar, and training and support will be continuously provided. We offer two sessions of training: a basic managerial introduction at our New York headquarters, and a comprehensive training session on location before opening.
  • MARKETING: we will provide you with a Grand Opening strategy, which will assist with successfully launching new shops; Local Store Marketing, which will ensure that the marketing budgets and ideas are best being used, and Point-Of-Purchase (POP!) materials and graphics for promotional materials.
  • OPERATIONS: Review of daily store operations; evaluation of Profit and Loss statement; coaching, training, and analysis of finances associated with managing the shop will be provided.
