Frequently Asked Questions
Q. What are the upfront costs?
A. The one-time franchise fee ranges from $20K-$100K based upon the demographics of the territory selected. Recommended additional working capital to open your business ranges from $15K-$50K.
Q. Are there any royalty or advertising fees?
A. A monthly royalty of 6% of gross sales is collected from each franchise owner which allows the corporate office to provide ongoing support and services. No separate advertising or co-op fee is charged.
Q. Tell me more about who my clients will be?
A. We sell our products and services direct to the owners and managers of commercial properties such as office buildings, hotels, restaurants, atriums, and malls. We also work closely with design professionals including landscape architects and interior designers who specify products for clients.
Q. How much money can I make?
A. We make no promises about financial rewards to you. How much you make will primarily depend upon your individual efforts!
Q. How do you sell your products and services in the marketplace?
A. Typically, we set an appointment to meet face-to-face with a prospect or client in order to give a tailored presentation on our company and a custom proposal for their facility. We also participate in a bid process on many high profile projects.
Q. Why do clients want interior plants in their buildings?
There are a myriad of reasons why a client will choose our products and services. Our interiorscapes:
Bring the beauty of nature indoors
Contribute to a mood or theme
Increase property values
Attract tenants and guests
Boost employee morale and performance
Filter out indoor air pollutants (live plants)
Offer a less expensive alternative to furniture & artwork
Consumer expectations and competitive considerations will also influence our client's buying decisions.
Q. What is the availability of territory in my area?
A. Because we started franchising in Florida where we are headquartered, our greatest concentration of offices is in the southeastern U.S.; however, many opportunities exist in both primary and secondary markets across the U.S. International opportunities also exist. Let us know your territory preference and we will discuss availability with you.
Q. Where do I buy plants, planters, and related supplies for this business?
A. You may purchase interiorscape products from any reputable supplier. Highest quality live plants are purchased direct from approved growers in Florida, California, and Hawaii. On behalf of our franchisees, we negotiate volume and preferred client discounts from industry vendors. (Information about vendors and suppliers is provided in our initial training class and in our Operations Manual.)
Q. Who takes care of the plants at these commercial properties?
A. Uniformed, trained technicians typically provide weekly maintenance services including watering, pruning, fertilizing, pest control, and related plant health management. We provide our franchise owners with training so that they are equipped to provide plant care services themselves or to train or hire qualified service technicians.
Q. How do I obtain a UFOC and Franchise Agreement?
A. In three simple steps: 1) Complete the enclosed Franchise Qualification Form and e-mail or fax it to us. This form does not constitute an offer of a franchise. 2) Next, we will contact you via phone to conduct a personal interview. 3) Then, upon our mutual agreement, we will mail our federally registered Uniform Offering Circular (UFOC) and Franchise Agreement to you. We also encourage franchise prospects to schedule a visit to our headquarters in Orlando, Florida to learn more about our franchise opportunity.
Upon the decision to purchase a franchise, we require a 10% non-refundable deposit with a Letter of Intent. The Franchise Agreement is executed & the balance of the franchise fee is due on or before the first day of training.
