Upon receipt of your completed Request for Consideration Form, we will mail you our Franchise Disclosure Document (FDD). The FDD further defines the relationship between the Franchisor (us) and the Franchisee (you). It is a legal document, and it is what you will sign in order to become The Brass Tap franchisee.
7. FDD Review Call
Within two weeks of receiving the FDD, we will contact you to schedule a FDD Conference Call. This call will give you the opportunity to ask any questions that you may have about the FDD or Franchise Agreement. If you plan to review the FDD with an attorney, or have specific legal questions, please submit your questions prior to our call.
8. Discovery Day!
Your Discovery should be held within 30 days of your FDD Conference Call. Discovery Days are held at our corporate headquarters in Tampa, FL. You will have the opportunity to view our operations and see firsthand how The Brass Tap works as well as spend time with our staff and President.
If we feel that you are a great franchisee candidate, we will send you a formal written offer including the assigned territory. The signing is done remotely and does not require a trip back to our headquarters.
