Path to Ownership
At Ziebart, our goal is to make your path to ownership as simple and clear as possible. In just a few simple steps, get a better understanding of what you need to do in order to become a member of the Ziebart franchise family.
Step One: Request Information
Want to learn more about the Ziebart franchise system and your potential place in it? Get in touch with one of our Franchise Development Team Members by filling out an online request. A member of our team will reach out to you with more information and answers to any question you may have.
Step Two: Fill Out a Profile
Once you’re ready to begin the on-boarding process, fill out an online profile to help us learn more about you. You can also give us a call at 800-877-1312
with any questions you may have along the way.
Step Three: FDD & Due Diligence
We will provide you with a Franchise Disclosure Document as part of our pre-sale due diligence process. You will have the opportunity to review the document and ask us any questions you may have regarding its contents.
Step Four: Financing
Ziebart is approved by the U.S. Small Business Association (SBA) and listed on the Franchise Registry. This ensures that all our franchisees have the benefit of a streamlined review process for SBA financing. Find out if you qualify.
Step Five: Attend a Discovery Day
A Ziebart Discovery Day involves visiting our corporate headquarters in Troy, Michigan, spending the day discussing your opportunities, and touring company-owned and franchise-owned locations. This allows you to witness the operational aspects of your new business firsthand as well as get answers to your most pressing questions in-person.
Approval to buy a franchise can be granted as early as 24 hours after your visit!
Step Six: Open Your Franchise!
From start to finish, it takes approximately six months to open a Ziebart store. Starting a franchise begins with finding an effective site within the market you’ve chosen, as well as the time required to secure a lease, acquire financing, set up equipment, and complete our training program.
