Our goal in establishing franchises is to see them prosper and flourish. We truly care about each of our franchisees, and we want them to know we’ve got their backs. That’s what makes us a great team — we know that none of us can do as well alone than we can do all together. With us as your professional trainer and coach, you can reach your potential.
If you have a question, we’ll give you the answer. You’ll have access to our corporate team, who can advise you in any aspect of your 2nd Time Sports franchise business.
We are committed to providing our franchisees with the training and assistance that they need to succeed. After you sign your franchise deal, you’ll receive our confidential operations manual to learn about our operations and computer systems.
Training begins in the coach’s classroom at our headquarters in Dunedin, Fl where we combine classroom and “on the job” training at the model store- just around the corner. Your training will be extensive from covering operations, including equipment operation; advertising, promotions, customer service, and safety. You’ll also become familiarized with the proper procedures for opening and closing, buying and pricing, and inventory control. You will learn many of the services you will be delivering in the service center in your store. You will have POS system training done by the experts themselves and meet many of the individuals who will be personally assisting you with anything “Point of Sale”. During your grand opening, we’ll be on-site at your store for 5 to 10 days of training to ensure everything gets up and running smoothly.
