After that initial call, you both can determine if you want to receive the Candidate Confidential Application to fill out and return. Once you are preliminarily approved you will work with your Franchise Development Person who will review your Confidential Application and your plans to develop and operate your own MAX Challenge Franchise.
Webinar with much more information
This is scheduled once your application is returned. This will be a detailed webinar we go through over approximately 60-90 minutes.
