Process to Becoming a Franchisee

  • To get started, complete the online FRANCHISE INFORMATION REQUEST form and/or email us at [email protected]

    1 Personal Analysis

    Would owning and operating a Tiny Hoppers be the perfect opportunity for you? Analyze business trends, talk to people you trust and, most importantly, look within yourself. If you feel comfortable and ready, move ahead with this exciting process. 

    2 Screening Questionnaire

    Fill out and return your screening questionnaire along with a signed copy of the Confidentiality Agreement. This will help us begin to determine your aptitude for this field and your readiness in owning a Tiny Hoppers Centre.

    3 Open Discussion

    Now, with all the materials in hand, discuss your questions and concerns with us. We will begin a steady dialog while providing any and all answers you are seeking to help you feel confident in your research and your decision making process

    4 Discovery Day

    Once both parties feel comfortable and confident in this business relationship, you will join us at our headquarters in Ottawa, Canada to attend a Discovery Day. Your visit to Ottawa will be to meet key executives and staff and confirm what you have learned about our concept, operations, training and support.  On the floor observation and analysis of three programs must be observed – Play Program, Nursery School and Daycare Program.

    5 Approval Process

    All approval information must be handed in at this point.

    • Criminal record check
    • Credit check
    • Letter from bank stating liquid assets and personal net worth
    • References
    • Designation of territory

    6 Real-Estate, Business Plan & Due Diligence

    There are many ingredients that meld together to make a business successful. Before you start your Tiny Hoppers’ Franchise we want you to really understand the community and the commitment it will take to be a success. This plan will help you further research your prospective location to ensure that it will be a good fit for a Tiny Hoppers’ Franchise.

    You will be introduced to our Real-Estate Representative who will work with you in securing a site in an area of your choosing, all while taking into consideration local demographics and competitive market conditions.  As this becomes finalized, the Business Plan begins to take shape and you can start arranging for financing.

    7 Feedback and Analysis from Tiny Hoppers HQ/ Complete Final Approval Process

    At this point, the next step to take would be one of the following:

    1. Once the real-estate site has been confirmed and financing is in place, we forward you the Franchise Agreement and Disclosure Document to review.
    2. You and/or Tiny Hoppers will perform additional analysis to determine if this commitment is feasible for you. (i.e., financing, time requirements, other obligations)
    3. You may realize that this is not the right opportunity for you or that this is not the proper time for you to make such a commitment.
