▶ Do I need previous retail or franchising experience to become a Cellairis® franchisee?
No, you do not. One of the advantages of a Cellairis® franchise is that we are a relatively simple retail operation. We will provide you with all the training necessary at our corporate facilities to start your new business venture.
▶ What are the minimum financial requirements to open a Cellairis® location?
We do offer a few different store models so it varies. The minimum requirement for a kiosk franchise is $50,000 in liquid assets and/or the ability to obtain financing for at least $80,000.

The initial franchise fee is $20,000 for a kiosk and $25,000 for an inline or a full-store experience. The initial royalty fee for a kiosk and inline is only $800/month or 3% of gross sales (whichever is greater). The royalty fee for a Full Store Experience is 4% of gross sales.

Not at this time. We do reserve the right to collect up to 3% of gross sales, or 5% for interactive kiosk/RMU, if and when we establish an advertising fund upon written notice to you.

Yes, although we are not obligated to do so. Locations may be suggested and must be accepted by us. We also may enlist the services of a real estate broker in your region.
