How much does the franchise cost?
The cost of the franchise includes the lump-sum and the startup investment. The price depends on the city and the country where you plan to open your G.Bar. After you fill out the application, we will provide you full
information on the lump-sum and approximate startup investment for your country/city.
What is the total amount of the required startup investment? What does it include?
The startup investment mainly depends on selected premises, including renovation costs, rental fee, cost of equipment, number of workplaces, as well as on the chosen business model (beauty bar + cafe, beauty bar + photo
studio and other collaborations). Ranges from 160 000 USD.
Therefore it is absolutely necessary that our investment analysts build the financial model of a G.Bar (return of investment calculation) in your city. To get that done we send you a questionnaire to help us conduct
the marketing analysis of the region, based on which we build the preliminary financial model of the project. The accuracy of the financial model depends on the quality of marketing data provided by you.
Do you sell the franchise in cities with population below 200,000 people?
Depends on the macro- and microeconomic indicators of the city.
In Ukraine: based on our experience and knowledge, launching the projects in cities with population below 200,000 is risky, since the service margin in such cities is lower, the customers flow is smaller, so the
payback period significantly increases, which is not interesting neither to our potential franchisee nor to us. This could have a negative impact on development of the G.Bar business model, so it was decided to
not sell the franchise there.
In Europe: possible.
Can I open a Mini G.Bar?
Yes, taking into account the specifics of the city/place where the G.Bar is supposed to be located. Mini format is designed for small premises of up to 60 square meters. It entails a reduced number of services based
on the area.
Do you help to choose premises? What premises is needed?
Taking into account the specifics of the city we give recommendations on the choice of location and premises where the G.Bar is supposed to be located. We have developed a business designer model, according to the extended
format of which we recommend to open G.Bar + Cafe/+Lavla/+Bar/+Photoroom.
How long does it take to open/launch the business?
On average, it takes 3-4 months from signing to opening. The main influencing factor is the choice of premises for the beauty bar and its condition (the need for deconstruction works), renovation works.
Do I and my staff get any training before launching G.Bar?
Prior to the launch, the franchisee and the manager go through an adaptation period in the G.Bar main office.
Our launch team travels to the location of the future G.Bar and provides the entire franchisee team with professional and service standards training in each area to the entire franchisee team.
Who searches and recruits the future G.Bar specialists and other personnel?
The Franchisee has to do the search and recruitment of personnel, including specialists. We provide requirements and job descriptions for each position, as well as recommendations on the search methods and channels.
After the franchisee selects potential candidates, our G.Bar launch team experts in each area (hair, makeup and nail) who are the members of G.Bar launch team, interview and select future G.Bar specialists in the
new region and train them to our professional standards of customer service.
