We are totally committed to building and maintaining a highly professional and successful Vitamin Shop retail network. We expect our franchisees to be 100% committed and we will match that attitude with our own commitment. We consider every single one of our franchisees to be of a fundamental importance to our long term plans.
As a franchisee, you can be assured that we will dedicate ourselves wholeheartedly to the task of helping you make a success of it. Our business relationship with you needs to be based on cooperation, understanding and trust. There must be a mutual belief that we are both fully committed to making this business successful. Whilst we will do everything in our power to help and support you, the business is yours and we cannot run it for you or take responsibility for it.
The success of your business depends on your own enthusiasm and hard work. You will only succeed if you share our passion for this business and give it the commitment that it needs.
The Vitamin Shoppe provides both initial and on-going training. Franchise Partners are required to successfully complete a two week training program held at our Corporate Offices. We additionally provide product education training through our proprietary Vitamin Shoppe University courses.
On an ongoing basis, we will provide regular product training updates as well as in country operational training by your designated Regional Manager. These training programs supplement and support the systems and processes described in our International Operations Manual.
We don’t just get your shop up and running and then leave you to it. Our success is dependent upon your success and we will be there to provide you with help and support on an ongoing basis.
