Why i Fix Screens?
In order to insure the success of the store, we require a $150,000 net worth, with $75,000-$125,000 of this in liquid assets, for all potential franchisees. A “liquid asset” is something that can accessed quickly (ie: cash, stocks) as opposed to non-liquid asset (ie: real estate) which could take months to sell.
Repair experience is not required but it would be beneficial to have an IT background for consideration. We accept partnerships for ownership of a store, so it is the combined assets and experience of the partnership that is used in determining whether or not an application for franchising is accepted or not.
Real Estate Requirements
Although we at i Fix Screens do scout out areas for new stores you are free to apply for a store in a particular location. This location must be approved by i Fix Screens, with the primary areas of consideration being:
Average net worth of the neighborhood
Obviously, the more traffic in an area and the higher the average net worth in any area, the better the chances that your location will be approved. Once you have submitted a location request in writing to i Fix Screens, we will analyze the area based upon the three indices listed above, as well as the locations of existing stores, and make a final determination of whether or not a location is acceptable.
Financing of the Franchising Fee
i Fix Screens provides no financing. We are seeking those individuals looking to invest their time and their money into building a successful franchise. Additionally, there is no way for us to make a determination of how profitable a store will be.
