- Offer extended: 5 to 7 days
- Training: 5 days
- Initial Group Buildout: 15 to 30 days
NIA works hard to select the best areas for our franchise businesses. The great part is there is no land selection, negotiations or build out costs or the risks that come along with this process. NIA franchises can be run from a home office or small lease space. No landlord, no headaches and no staffing!
Because of this, it typically takes 1-2 months to open a NIA franchise. That’s quicker than most every franchise you will see. The training takes place once a month for a week in Houston and then you are off and running.
Scott Talley, puts it well: “We wanted to design a franchise model with a quick return on a franchise owner’s initial investment. When we find the right location for your group, our IT department can have you up and running during your week of training.”
Then your time is also put to good use. Franchisees continue their training with online courses developed by NIA to further familiarize themselves with the business and the way NIA is revolutionizing business networking.
