How many employees do I need on-site?
Unlike typical retail, we require minimal staff. Most stores have a manager plus smoothie staff and consultants.
What type of training do you provide?
We believe in setting up our Franchise Owners for success. We provide a three-week training program, consisting of one week at our headquarters in Omaha and one week in a corporate-owned store in a nearby location. Once you are ready to open your doors, we send a trainer to your store for one week or more to help you pre-and post-opening. Above and beyond, we’ve developed Become Complete University, an online portal for ongoing tools and training that’s always accessible.
Are customers able to buy our products online?
They are able to purchase Complete Nutrition products through our eCommerce site, where 100% of the proceeds go back to the Franchise Owner. Our products are exclusive to us and not sold anywhere else.
Are your products safe and effective?
Yes, they are third-party tested against rigorous standards. We go beyond FDA requirements to ensure their safety and quality are first-rate. Our concept revolves around results, and our loyal customers prove the effectiveness of our products.
How do I know which products to order and how much inventory?
Our Product Team guides you through your first order and beyond to keep inventory levels low, but adequate. The Dashboard also reports which products are selling well at other stores and provides ordering recommendations. We provide you with insights and best practices, but you will always make the final decision.
