Lacking Start-up Capital to Become a Gigi’s Cupcakes Franchisee? Bring Your Sweat Equity Instead

Once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to own a Gigi’s, even if you’re short on cash

As Gigi’s Cupcakes franchise continues to fine-tune our growth and expansion efforts, we’re selling corporately-owned stores outside of Texas, where our headquarters are located. We know that passionate owners create profitable businesses, and when those owners invest their resources into their endeavors, the result is remarkable.

That’s why we have decided to try a different approach to franchise ownership with several of our corporate stores outside of Texas. We are focused on finding experienced restaurateurs and business operators who may not have the start-up capital usually required to become a franchisee with Gigi’s. What you lack in money, however, you more than make up for in passion, drive, commitment and work ethic!

Gigi’s Cupcakes’ corporate team is offering a sweat equity deal in which we’ll partner with potential business owners to help you become a Gigi’s franchisee. Each deal will likely be a unique “operate-to-own” arrangement, based on the personal investment of time, energy and resources and the ability to hit specific development benchmarks.

What we need from you:

  • Passion for Gigi’s Cupcakes and business ownership
  • Knack for running a business; general business skills
  • Active member of the local community where the store is located
  • Solid work ethic, with a commitment to be a hands-on day-to-day owner/operator

The benefits of taking over an existing Gigi’s Cupcakes franchise

Buying an existing Gigi’s gives new franchisees the springboard they need to scale their franchises quickly “outside the four walls” of their shops. Opening a catering side or mall kiosk and nurturing relationships with other businesses all offer multiple revenue streams for franchisees.

By entering into this special relationship with our corporate office, you will potentially have an even quicker path to seeing a profit. Because your investment consists mainly of your sweat equity, there’s great potential for financial gain at a faster pace than what you’d expect with a traditional deal.

These existing stores have solid clienteles, outstanding reputations and positive brand identities in their communities. They are all primed and ready for the right enthusiastic and dedicated owner-operator to take them to the next level.
