Q:  Is training provided?
Yes. Training is critical in your development as an Alive franchisee and one that we are committed to. The four step training process is:

  1. The Alive Clinics operations manual will be provided once your franchise documentation and sale is complete. This manual contains information on all facets of the business and will give you a great insight into the systems, policies and procedures overlaid in every Alive Clinic. You are encouraged to read this manual and sign off on competencies in each area as the first step.

  2. It is now time to commence your ‘one on one’ training with our Head Office Team. This will occur prior to your clinic opening date and will require 4 weeks of your time. During this course you will be trained in the correct operation of your Alive Clinic Franchise. Each of the operation modules will be worked through in a classroom environment while you will also be exposed to a working Alive Clinic.

  3. The week prior to your Clinic opening will be spent training and inducting your new team and completing specialist technical training within your Clinic. We will also use this time to help you set up your Clinic for trading.

  4. A member of the Alive Clinic field will be allocated to your Clinic for the first week of trading to help you settle in and to cover any unforseen challenges that you may encounter.

Q: Am I required to work in the Clinic?
Not necessarily. The Alive system allows for both hands-on and absentee owners. All franchise owners are required to go through the pre-opening training program and to demonstrate the competencies required to run a successful Alive franchise. Whether you are in the store day to day or working from elsewhere, you will need to understand, train and lead your team ongoing in all systems, policies and procedures.

Upon receipt of you application the Alive Team will offer you a list of limited and exclusive Territories in your chosen area. Currently limited, exclusive territories are available in most states.

Q: How long until I am up and running?
The timing of your store opening is dependant on the franchise documents being prepared and signed, lease commencement date, Clinic design approval, shop fit-out period and completion of all training. Our Specialist Leasing Consultant can negotiate the commercial terms of the lease, including the handover date on the approved tenancy.

A date suitable to you, to the landlord and to the Alive Clinics support team will be determined once all factors are confirmed. A documented schedule of events will guide you through this process. A period of between 6 and 12 weeks should be allowed.
