ShelfGenie Franchise Cost and Requirements for 2024


If you are looking for an established and successful home-based franchise that is fun, unique, creative, and purposeful, ShelfGenie could be for you! Our owners are professionals who want to build an enterprise that is scalable, has the ability to ramp up quickly, and allows them to work ON the business and not in it. ShelfGenie is a very simplistic business model with very low overhead and is home-based. Unparalleled support, especially being a part of the Neighborly Brands family of franchises as of 2020. This can also offer a very comfortable "lifestyle" business and is run on a day to day basis by a small team of part-time and some full-time 1099 contractors (designers and installers). Ideally looking for owners who want to be a multi-territory franchise owner. When it comes to what we do, how we do it, our quality, and the scale on which we perform - we have no competition.

Where can I see ShelfGenie's FDD (Franchise Disclosure Document)?

Buying a Franchise Guide: What is a Franchise Disclosure Document?

When evaluating a franchise opportunity, reading and understanding the current version of their FDD is a necessity. Considering the benefits of franchising, such as established brand recognition and support from the franchisor, it's important to also take into account franchise fees and franchising royalty fees. Since most franchisors are privately owned companies, the current versions of their FDDs are typically not available unless requested directly from them.
