Franchise Support and Continuing Education
Before signing on with a Lil’ Angels, a potential franchise owner should know what type of support our company provides. At Lil’ Angels, we encourage you to look carefully at the Franchise Disclosure Document (FDD), call the office and speak to the Director of Franchise Sales, and talk to a few of our existing franchise owners to hear from them. We are committed to ongoing support to keep you in the loop concerning new trends and ways you can enhance your selling experience.
Our franchise support system is designed to strengthen business success and be there for the franchise owner whenever they need our assistance. Here are some ways Lil’ Angels assures our franchise owner of our commitment to them:
Training Programs and Opening Support – Prior to attending the Lil’ Angels School, you will work with the Chief Manager and Director of Franchise Sales to make sure you are prepared to open your business on your designated starting date.
