Common Questions Answered
Who can own a G-FORCE™ Franchise?
Only honorably discharged military veterans (or active Guard or Reserve)
Can Veteran family members buy a G-FORCE™ Franchise?
At this time, we are remaining committed to making this exclusive to veterans. Should a Gold Star Family Member or someone similarly situated approach us, we will explore different options and try to find a way to help.
Why make G-FORCE™ exclusive to Veterans?
We feel the best way to attract veterans to our team and help them achieve success is by making our franchise offering exclusive to them. Fellow business owners like doing business with veterans. This is a win-win for all parties.
What are the franchise fees?
Our Franchise Fees start at a very low $5,000 (for what we call Partial Operating Territories) and scale up based upon population. Standard Territories are $10,000 (less than half the cost of most Franchise Fees) and extra Territory Zones may be purchased for just $5,000 each. Detailed explanations are found in our Franchise Disclosure Document available to qualified applicants upon request.
How do you determine territories?
We look at a number of criteria including population, demographics, local economy and other factors to ensure you have an ample territory to launch and grow your business. The territory boundaries are defined by counties.
What are your royalties and what do they cover?
We have created an attractive royalty structure that starts at 7% and scales to just 4% as sales grow. Details are found in our Franchise Disclosure Document (FDD), available to qualified applicants upon request. Royalties cover our efforts on your behalf to help with marketing, support for your franchise, web presence and recruitment of other veterans into our system.
Are line striping services the only service G-FORCE™ provides?
No! Our system is designed to allow you to either stay exclusively within the Parking Lot Striping market or expand into a myriad of other offerings such as pavement services (sealcoating, crack sealing, hot asphalt repairs and new paving), power washing, etc. Certain sales goals must be met before you may expand services (see our FDD).
Should I choose to buy a G-FORCE™ franchise, how long before I can be up and running?
About 30-45 days.
Why not start my own Line Striping business? Why do I need a franchise?
You might not need a franchise if you’ve got a great logo, branding expertise, strong internet and web skills, training, and more at your fingertips. As you learned in the military, the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. As we build a national brand, we can generate more internet traffic and develop more sales opportunities with each franchise participating in the market. And, if you run the numbers, you’ll see that our low franchise fees are far less than you’d have to spend to duplicate what we offer in terms of graphic design, logos, website, training, email marketing campaigns, etc.
Finally, and perhaps most importantly, our owners share that common bond of having served and value being part of a team that’s truly dedicated to each other’s success.
