  1. Demographic Characteristics:Β Dive into the specifics of age groups, income brackets, and the kinds of occupations that dominate the area. πŸ’ΌπŸ’°

  2. Traffic Patterns:Β Get a handle on daily foot and vehicular traffic, pinpointing those crucial peak hours and accessibility routes. πŸš—πŸšΆ

  3. Neighborhood Character:Β Understand the heartbeat of the area – is it a bustling commercial hub or a cozy residential nest? Is it an urban playground or a suburban retreat? πŸ™οΈπŸ‘

  4. Competitor Analysis:Β Take stock of the competition – are there similar businesses nearby? πŸ•΅οΈβ€β™‚οΈπŸ› οΈ

  5. Proximity to Supporting Businesses:Β Don’t forget about your allies! Check for nearby spare part suppliers and essential services. πŸ›’πŸ› οΈ

  • Printout of Google Maps:Β Mark it up with nearby residential and commercial spots for a visual snapshot. πŸ—ΊοΈπŸ“Œ

  • Photographs of the Neighborhood:Β Paint a picture of the surroundings – it’ll provide invaluable context. πŸ“ΈπŸ™οΈ

  • Photographs of the Site:Β We’re taking a 360-degree view here. Every angle counts when planning your facility. πŸ“Έ

  • Hand-Drawn Sketch:Β This is where you lay it all out – site dimensions, structures, internal layout, height, and any permanent partitions. πŸ“πŸ’

While this checklist is a powerful tool, it doesn’t guarantee site approval by the Franchisor or compliance to your criteria. Each location shall be assessed based on your / franchisor’s specific criteria. ⚠️
