The questions you aks:
How long does it take to get started as an Oil Can Henry's service center operator?
The length of time it takes to locate commercial real estate which is appropriate for an Oil Can Henry's service center and cost effective for you will vary dramatically depending on the real estate conditions in the market you are developing. Once real estate is located and approved by you and OCHI, you can expect to be open in 9-12 months.
Does Oil Can Henry's provide help with real estate site selection?
When you have been approved by OCHI and paid a down payment on your Franchise Fee, you will execute a Franchisor Site Location Agreement and the real estate professionals employed by OCHI will locate real estate in your market which meets our criteria and your price range. If OCHI is not able to locate the appropriate real estate in your time frame laid out in the Franchisor Site Location Agreement, you will be refunded your down payment, minus our out-of-pocket expenses, not to exceed $2,000.
Do I have to buy land or can I lease it?
The choice is yours; however, some markets or sites may dictate the direction. You will indicate in the Franchisor Site Location Agreement your preference of leasing or purchasing and the price range you prefer, and the OCHI real estate professionals will search for locations accordingly.
