Nine Steps to Start a Fundraising Business

Get Started

1Submit a Request

To start, just fill out our convenient online form! A member of our franchising team will be in touch shortly to set up an introductory meeting.

2Have an Introductory Call

This is where we start getting to know each other. During your initial call, you’ll have 30 minutes to chat with our VP of Franchise Development. It’s a perfect opportunity to ask your most pertinent questions about our franchise process and begin to understand who we are.

3Tell Us About Yourself

We want to know about you, too! As we move forward in the franchise process, we’ll ask you to share more information about yourself. Along the way, we’ll send you additional information about all things Apex, from operations and financials to daily expectations.

4Check Back in with the VP

By now, you’ve received a lot of information! Once we complete our financial due diligence, we’ll arrange another call between you and the VP of Franchise Development. This will be your chance to ask any questions that might have come up during the process and address anything else that may be on your mind.

5Materials Review Call

Since there’s a lot to go through, we’ll schedule a separate call to discuss the materials you’ve received, including the franchise disclosure document. During this time, we’ll answer any questions you might still have about our potential partnership, and then we’ll make sure we’ve gone over the fine print for the exciting steps to come!

6Chat With the CEO

As you start to round the corner to the end of the franchise process, you’ll have the opportunity to talk with our CEO, Jamie Krasnov. He’s a treasure trove of Apex knowledge — be sure to ask him how many times he’s been slimed!

7Wrap-Up Call

Before we meet you in person for Discovery Day, we’ll have one last call to make sure we’re all aligned on the path forward.

8Join Us for Discovery Day

This is our favorite part! On Discovery Day, you’ll visit our headquarters and get to meet with the leadership team in person. We can’t wait to show you what Apex is all about.

9Get Leadership Team Approval

After Discovery Day, the leadership team will make a final decision on your application. From there, the choice is yours. Let us know if there’s anything we can do to help you decide.
