Step 1


When you are first weighing options for franchise ownership, our website provides valuable resources. Specifically, we recommend reviewing our Why AtWork page for company information, Investment & Qualifications page for financial details, Available Territories page to find a franchise territory near you, Staffing Industry Growth page for an introduction to the industry, ​​and our Franchisee Support page for information on our franchisee services.
Step 2

Contact Us

Fill out an online contact form to start the formal process toward AtWork Franchise ownership. In the comments section of the form, you can include details about your proposed location, experience, and more to help us understand your goals.

Step 3

Initial Interview

After you fill out our online form, an AtWork Franchise Development Representative will contact you to discuss some major areas associated with becoming a franchisee, including timing, work experience, funding/available capital, and goals. Additionally, we review the entire AtWork opportunity, discussing everything from support to the path to ownership that suits you best.
Step 4

Fill Out a Franchise Application

Next, you will complete a confidential franchise questionnaire. This gives us a better understanding of your ability to open a business and how we can best support your specific needs.
Step 5

Due Diligence — FDD Delivery, Review, and Validation Calls

By law, every franchisor must deliver to its prospective franchisees a copy of its updated FDD (Franchise Disclosure Document) to ensure that the franchise prospect has all pertinent information about the company, business model, and every other aspect of the business relationship with franchisees. After you have gone through the FDD, we will set up another call with your ​​franchise development representative to review it and discuss any questions you still have. We know this is a big decision that requires a lot of due diligence on your part. To help you with this, in​​ the last stage of the due diligence process, we connect you with existing owners who have been right where you are.

Step 6

Call With AtWork

Next, we will schedule a call with you and a senior member of our leadership team. You will have an opportunity to revisit many topics previously discussed, such as your goals, budgets, geographic territory, and, of course, next steps.

Step 7

Discovery Day

One last step before awarding the franchise is Discovery Day. Here, you will get all your questions answered and meet the operations staff that will help guide you toward success as an AtWork franchisee. We will discuss the industry, the franchise, training, support, territory, and the next steps.
Step 8

Franchise Awarding

After we have all the legally required documentation from you, we will draw up the franchise agreement for you to sign. Once signed and returned to AtWork’s corporate office, it is official! You are a part of the AtWork family as a franchisee!
