WHAT WILL I RECEIVE AS A NEXTAFF FRANCHISEE?
We will provide training for you and your key staff for one week at our support center, and one additional week of training at your office. Additional training may be made available, if needed. We will train you on operation of your office, services offered, costs and cash control, client services, comprehensive marketing and sales programs, accountability for sales and marketing, associate scheduling and methods of controlling operating costs. NEXTAFF will also cover management roles as well as each of your employees’ job functions. All NEXTAFF Franchisees have access to all NEXTAFF trademarks, marketing, products, procedures and LMS (learning management system). NEXTAFF Franchises receive full back-office support which includes: work comp, insurances, payroll financing, payroll & tax processing, HR assistance and front-office software. We’ll also provide you an online copy of our confidential operations manual to help you run your business properly on a day-to-day basis.
WHAT TYPE OF EXPERIENCE DO I NEED TO HAVE?
NEXTAFF is accepting franchise applications from staffing, b2b sales, executive and management professionals to join our system. We are also seeking existing staffing owners. The conversion of a staffing business to a Workforce Strategy franchise can represent a significant opportunity for current, experienced business owners who want to take their business to the next level. We look for owners with solid staff management and client service skills. We only work with owners who will be directly involved in the operations and growth of their NEXTAFF businesses. In turn, we’ll provide those owners the support needed to run their NEXTAFF operation. We do, of course, also expect that the Franchisee will have the necessary capital to invest in their business.
WHAT IS MY INVESTMENT TO JOIN NEXTAFF?
For a new Franchisee, the range is between $60,000 and $132,000, which includes a franchise fee of $10,000 to $25,000. It is important to note these estimates do not include all costs associated with owning a Nextaff franchise and the estimates are only for the initial period (3 months). As with any business venture, it’s important that you have the capital needed to adequately fund your business. For a Conversion Franchisee, the estimated required investment can range between $1 and $50,001. A Conversion Franchisee is only available to those staffing operators that have an existing staffing business that has been in operation for at least one year.
ARE THERE ONGOING (ROYALTY) FEES PAID TO NEXTAFF?
Franchisees will be required to pay royalties on a sliding scale, based on the gross wages of the business. The royalty rate would start at 8% of Gross Wages and can lower based on volume to a minimum of 6% of Gross Wages. The fees collected via royalty payments allow us to fund our ongoing support services and the continued development of procedures, marketing tools, training programs and system upgrades. For a full list of all potential fees – please review Item 6 in the Franchise Disclosure Document.
ARE THERE ANY ADVERTISING OR MARKETING FEES?
Franchisees are not required to spend a minimum amount on local advertising; however we do recommend taking out ads on various job boards for candidate recruiting. Currently, Franchisees are required to contribute the greater of .75% of Gross Wages or $100 per week into the Marketing Fund. These required contributions may be adjusted over time by the franchisor, but not to exceed a maximum of 1% of Gross Wages. Any collected funds will be used to develop marketing strategies to promote the NEXTAFF brand and fund the creative costs to maintain and update our website, develop local marketing materials and campaigns, conduct market research, and more.
IS FINANCING AVAILABLE?
We finance 100% of the payroll financing. However, we do not offer direct financing to Franchisees. We may be able to provide references to qualified financing or lending resources, on a case-by-case basis.
WHAT IS THE TERM OF THE AGREEMENT?
The initial term of the agreement is 10 years. Renewal terms are $1 for an additional 5 year term.
DO YOU HAVE ANY OPTIONS AVAILABLE THAT ARE NOT A FRANCHISE?
We do not have a non-franchise option at this time.
HOW DO YOU DIVIDE YOUR TERRITORIES?
We divide our territories by county. In most cases, you will be able to secure an entire county as your territory. Notable exceptions are Harris County, TX and Maricopa County, AZ. Other exceptions may also exist.
WHAT TYPE OF TRAINING DO YOU PROVIDE?
We break out our training into three segments. First, we have online training that covers our CRM, payroll software, recruiting, sales and management. Second, you will spend approximately a week at our corporate support center in Louisville, KY training on all aspects of the business. Finally, we will send an Operations Support person to your location for approximately a week of hands on support and training.
