Steps To Ownership

  • Step 1

    HAVE AN INITIAL CONVERSATION with our Franchise Sales Director and discuss your background, territory availability and the financial qualifications necessary to own a STOP franchise territory.

  • Step 2

    COMPLETE THE LGA (Let’s Get Acquainted Form). We want to know about you. And please make a list of things you want to know about us. Your LGA form will trigger the next step and our next conversation toward joining the STOP team.

  • Step 3

    RECEIVE AN ELECTRONIC VERSION OF OUR FDD (Franchise Disclosure Document). The FDD will be provided to you, and our franchise sales team will be available to answer questions that you have during your review of the document.

  • Step 4

    MAKE VALIDATION CALLS WITH EXISTING FRANCHISEES. The FDD contains a list of all franchisees in our system. In addition, our franchise sales team will provide you bios and phone numbers of our franchisees, who you are invited to contact to answer any questions that you may have.

  • Step 5

    SCHEDULE A Q & A SESSION with one of STOP’s executives Brian Clark or Daren Clark. The purpose of the conversation is to provide you an opportunity to gain a greater understanding of the business and the culture.

  • Step 6

    ATTEND A DISCOVERY DAY in Temecula, California. Your visit to Temecula will give you a complete overview of what it is like to be an owner of a STOP franchise. Our Discovery Days are typically conducted in one day, and our schedules are fairly flexible, so we will adjust our schedule around yours. We will answer any final questions you have about the Franchise Agreement and the franchise territory. We will review the expectations that we have and provide you a thorough overview of support services.

  • Step 7

    SIGN FRANCHISE AGREEMENTS and schedule your introductory session with our team to prepare for your training session. Disasters do happen! But now you are there to help serve your community.
