FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Does LA MODE café.RESTAURANT™ provide financing programs?
No. LA MODE café.RESTAURANT™ does not offer direct financing and does not have any affiliate programs with third-party lending sources. We believe that the franchise owner should have sufficient capital, of its own to purchase and operate the restaurant.

Do I need to have restaurant management experience?

LA MODE café.RESTAURANT™ management will provide you with the training and ongoing support that you need. If you do not have any experience in quick service restaurant management it is highly recommended that you hire an experienced principal operator to run the restaurant. We recommend that at least one owner or a designated manager will be involved on a full-time basis managing day to day operations and to gain hands-on experience.

What is the return on the investment?
LA MODE café.RESTAURANT™ believes that a significant part of the success of the business depends on the chosen location, the amount of time you spend in your store, and your ability to control the operating costs. We are not permitted, and are restricted by franchise law, to provide profit or earnings predictions.

Who selects the restaurant location?
Finding the perfect location is one of the hardest challenges you will face. You will be in charge of finding the location but LA MODE café.RESTAURANT™ will assist you during this process. We will provide you with all of our knowledge and a great deal of time to support you during this search. At the end of the day, it is in both your interest and ours to find the most suitable location. LA MODE café.RESTAURANT™ will review the proposed options and approve a location that will meet our site criteria.

Who is responsible of the design and construction of the store?
As soon as you join the LA MODE café.RESTAURANT™ family, we begin working with you to help you get started. In our franchise kit you will find store design guidance, an architectural section including a LA MODE café.RESTAURANT™ store prototype layout, detailed store plans and an equipment spec. You will work with your LA MODE café.RESTAURANT™  representative and our chain architect, kitchen consultant and design agency to develop and build LA MODE café.RESTAURANT™. We will also help you to order the equipment package according to our equipment spec and will be available to answer construction related questions during the project.

How long does it take to open the restaurant?
It is very difficult to provide a time frame because there are many different factors that can influence the process in each location. However, from the time a franchise agreement is signed, it usually takes approximately 6 – 8 months to open a restaurant. One of the main challenges is finding the perfect location and negotiating the lease. Estimated construction time is 2 – 3 months.

Do I receive assistance in opening the restaurant?
Yes. In addition to your 2 week initial training period, an experienced field operations consultant will help you and your staff before your new LA MODE café.RESTAURANT™ is ready for the grand opening and during the first days of the operation.

How much freedom do I have to change things within the LA MODE café.RESTAURANT™ formula?
A lot of time and effort has gone into creating the LA MODE café.RESTAURANT™ experience. Therefore there is very limited freedom for making changes. The power of any franchise, including our brand, relies on the fact that you gain access and can make use of our knowledge accumulated over time, which should allow you to succeed.

What kind of ongoing support does LA MODE café.RESTAURANT™ provide?

Once the franchise agreement is signed, you will receive the LA MODE café.RESTAURANT™ franchise kit which includes the brand visual identity guideline book, the standard operating procedure manual and the architecture section. This kit is what we like to call the franchisee “bible”, as it covers many important aspects that will assist you in the business operations. Our field representative will pay you visits and will always be available to answer any questions you may have. We are always excited to offer our advice and guidance with issues such as quality control, customer service, marketing, training and any other aspect that has to do with the daily operations and managing the business.

Can I open more than one store?
We welcome experienced qualified groups from the food service restaurant industry to explore our franchise options to open multiple LA MODE café.RESTAURANT™ locations. Based on your application, financial information, and prior experience, you may be eligible to purchase more than one LA MODE café.RESTAURANT™ restaurant. Once you open the first LA MODE café.RESTAURANT™ restaurant and gain hands on experience and knowledge of building and operating the restaurant, you will be qualified to open multiple locations and grow with our company. You will be more familiar with the business and we will encourage you to open multiple locations.
