October 07, 2010 // Franchising.com // (Virginia Beach, VA) In response to the economic climate and financing obstacles of opening a franchise, Liberty Tax Service announces a new "Franchise Boot Camp" program that puts prospective franchisees through the paces of owning a tax franchise, while they collect a salary to run the office. Candidates can choose to "enlist" for seven weeks of extensive franchise operational training and real-time management responsibilities of running a retail store front during tax season.
The approved candidate will receive in-depth instruction on marketing, management, hiring, budgeting, tax preparation and other aspects of running a Liberty Tax office. After operating the office, the candidate can apply this newly gleaned experience to purchase the office, or finish the job with no further obligation. Liberty Tax will accept applications for "Franchise Boot Camp" at email@example.com.
"This is a 'win-win' for both parties: our approved candidates can try us before they buy, and Liberty Tax has a report card on their ability to run a successful tax office before they enter our franchise ranks," commented CEO John Hewitt on this inaugural franchise training program.
Residents of California, Hawaii, Illinois, Indiana, Maryland, Michigan, Minnesota, New York, North Dakota, Rhode Island, South Dakota, Virginia, Washington, and Wisconsin must comply with the specific state applicable presale registration and disclosure requirements.
