Design & Construction
Acai Express has an in-house design and
construction manager that works with you hand in hand to create an as-build. We
provide a construction and design manual, while the franchisee hires a general
contractor and sources equipment and materials through our vendors.
Our training program spans 2 weeks: one week in our corporate offices and
another week in the store once the franchisee is ready to open. We cover company
culture, product, customer service, operations, management, marketing, IT, financial
training, and supply chain, amongst others.
The Acai Express marketing team works with our franchisees
on paid advertising, social media, public relations, ad creation, and influencer
campaigns. We share our marketing research and material so you can get tangible
engagement and results to fuel your store’s success.
