Start Here!
step one

The request

Curious about what it means to be a Giggles Franchisee?

The first step is to submit a request for more information.  Submit your request below, and receive our complimentary Franchise Information Kit. 

step two

Let’s talk

Upon submission, a member of our franchise development team will set up an introductory phone call with you to talk franchising. We will tell you more about our company and answer any questions you might have to help you decide if Giggles franchise is a good fit for you.

step three

the application

The next step is the application. You will receive a Franchisee Application to complete so that we can learn more about you.  Your submitted application will be reviewed by our team.

step four

the review

Once your application has been approved, you will receive our Franchise Disclosure Document or the FDD as we like to call it. You will have at least 14 days to review the document.  It will tell you everything about our franchise structure. From there, an online meeting will be scheduled where we will discuss the FDD and answer any questions that you may have.

step five

discovery day

At this point, it is our pleasure to invite you to join us for Discovery Day at our Giggles Franchise Headquarters in Wilmington, NC.  You will meet with franchise executives, and experience an immersive glimpse into our unique childcare program, marketing, and business systems. This includes a hands-on tour of our flagship Giggles Drop-In Childcare Center, and a meet-and-greet with our center director.

step six

Congratulations! Upon receiving your completed Franchise Agreement and your initial franchise fee, it is at this step that you will be awarded a Giggles Drop-In Childcare Franchise. Now, the real fun begins with a future full of Giggles!
