January 22, 2016 // Franchising.com // BOCA RATON, Fla. – Prospective franchisees interested in growing Tikiz Shaved Ice & Ice Cream should sign on before the company’s multi-unit franchise deal expires this March. The fast-growing mobile franchise - specializing in Hawaiian shaved ice and ice cream - currently offers a $15,000 discount to franchisees who purchase three units; essentially waiving the franchise fee on the third unit. The deal will expire in two months when the company refiles its Franchise Disclosure Document (FDD) in March.
Executive Vice President of Business Develoment, Scott Mortier said: “The all-in cost for one Tikiz unit is under $125,000, so this deal is great for those looking to join our brand and effectively serve their market with multiple units. For anyone looking to change careers or start a side business to complement existing income, the Tikiz franchise opportunity offers flexibility, low-overhead costs and is a fun business to operate.”
The Tikiz business opportunity is a complete turn-key package with everything included from the truck, supplies and docking station equipment to marketing materials, Tikiz apparel, licenses, permits and insurance, among other items needed to successfully launch and operate the business. Franchisees enjoy a fixed royalty rate of $500 per month and a protected territory of a 150,000 residential population.
“We also have funding available to new and existing franchisees to streamline the opening process by reducing lender transaction costs and increasing access to working capital,” Mortier added.
Through the Tikiz SBA Express program, First Financial Bank has committed to finance a minimum of 75 Tikiz franchises, with 72-hour pre-approval and funding within 45 days. Available to new and existing franchisees, SBA Express makes it easier to process and fund low dollar loans up to $150,000 – the cost of opening one Tikiz unit. The franchise also provides financing through Ford Motor Company.
Since 2012, Tikiz Shaved Ice & Ice Cream has rolled into communities across the nation, providing locals with a hint of tropical-flavor with its fun, one-of-a-kind experience and delicious Hawaiian shaved ice and ice cream treats.
