    Fixed Location Franchises

    You may wish to transition to a fixed location after you become familiar with your territory and its capacity to achieve breakeven turnover. So after a period of monitoring in conjunction with Apollo, we will help you evaluate the best location for new showroom.

    Additional costs for new showroom:

    • Furniture
    • Fitout and signage
    • Legal
    • Computers and Telephone system
    • Showroom display samples
    • Computers and Telephone system
    • Showroom display samples
    • Telephone, Water and Electricity connections

    It would be your responsibility to enter into a lease on the premises and a bond will be required.

    The additional costs associated to transition to a fixed location will need to be assessed at this point as it cannot be estimated beforehand.

    Existing Apollo Branches

    Existing areas may be offered for sale from time to time. The pricing of an existing branch will be on a case-by-case basis depending on performance and actual return the area generates.

    At the time of your application, we will advise if there are any existing branches for sale.

    Mobile Franchise

    A mobile franchise may be suggested in a new area if demographic analysis identifies that the population concentration to derive an appropriate return of investment is too large hence a showroom may not be optimal and a mobile site preferred. Naturally, a mobile territory can transform into a showroom site.

    We are currently offering new territories to potential franchisees for a discounted fee from $66,650. That’s a saving of $49,020.

    Why such a discount? The following is a comment next to the pricing of the franchise.

    The Apollo Franchises are successful, and it is our philosophy to receive our returns over time from the business you create rather than from a large upfront fee for a yet to be proven franchise site.

    How to get your Business Moving

    If you are interested in becoming an Apollo franchisee please complete the application form, this will allow us to assess your ability to finance and run a franchise.

    When your Application Form has been approved, we will request a $1,000 commitment fee. A formal interview will be set up at either Head Office or a location convenient to you if you are
    out of state. Your application will be discussed, and you will be asked to complete a DISC questionnaire, which will help us assess your fit with Apollo’s values and corporate culture.

    Police checks and a finance check will be carried out at this stage, and we can also arrange for you to have a meeting with a current franchisee if you wish.

    If you are unsuccessful at the preliminary stage, your commitment fee will be refunded to you. Should your application be successful the fee will be deducted from your franchisee fee.

    Upon successfully undertaking our preliminary check procedures, we will provide you with a Franchise Code of Conduct, an Apollo Ethics Code of Conduct, a Franchise Disclosure Document, and a Franchisee Confidentiality Agreement.

    Apollo may then offer you an agreement to be viewed by either your solicitor, accountant, or financial adviser. Your solicitor, accountant or financial advisor will need to supply written confirmation that you have sought their advice, and their opinion was provided.

    Finally, the agreement will be signed, franchisee fee paid, and Apollo will supply you with a program and plan to cover training, site visitation and induction program.
