PuttingZone Academy Franchises
Geoff Mangum's PuttingZone Academy Franchises offer the best putting instruction in the history of golf and participation in a world-wide community of putting teachers and learners whose interactions keep these Academies perpetually at the forefront of golf putting instruction. If you're a golf pro, you certainly know that standard golf instruction is focused 99% on the full swing, even though golf is 40%+ putting and the putter is used nearly three times as often as every other club during every round of golf. PuttingZone Academies offer a complete body of knowledge and teaching techniques for putting to add to your school's existing repertoire of full-swing instruction. And ... you get marketed as a putting guru!
Prospective franchises should submit a letter of interest in the form provided by the PuttingZone. In general, eligibility requirements include:
PuttingZone Academy franchise training consists of a week of instruction in theory and practical techniques by Geoff Mangum, along with various written materials. Special sessions include teaching methods and franchise operations procedures and best practices. PuttingZone Academy training fully equips the owner to market and operate the Academy to offer the highest available putting instruction as an add-on complement to an existing golf school. The training teaches the owner how to assess a student's existing skills, to ascertain the student's goals and potential, to offer the best putting instruction for fundamental skills and psychological issues in the world, and to benchmark and chart student progress. The program includes teaching manuals, student questionnaires and profiles, testing protocols, and benchmarking and record-keeping protocols. The program also includes surveys of training aids and teaching techniques and a session on proper methods for putter fitting and selection. Training takes place periodically at centralized regional venues and is also available at your venue by prior arrangement. Initial training and all supplied materials are included in the pricing of the franchise. Franchisee staff may be included in training for nominal fees.
The PZ Academy franchises are available in a number of different pricing structures. Payment plans are available, including regularly scheduled monthly or annual payments. All franchises have an initial term of three years.
One plan is for a one-time $6,500.00 USD
(ú3,700 or €5,400) base fee plus 5% royalties of putting instructional
and services revenue at the school payable quarterly. The base fee includes
week-long training, manuals, an initial stock of signage and business
supplies, grand-opening promotional event, and on-going marketing and
operational support and updating.
One plan is for payment of one-third, $2,200.00 (ú1,265 or Euros €1,850) for the first year plus 10% royalties payable monthly, with two additional annual payments of the same amount.
Another option is available for one-half, $3,250.00 (ú1,865 or Euros €2,725) as a one-time base fee plus 15% royalties payable montly, with two further annual payments of $1,625 or equivalent. On-going franchise business supplies will be available at cost plus shipping and handling. Separate fees apply for extra training.
Provision of PuttingZone merchandise to franchisees will be at wholesale pricing and shipping and handling calibrated to provide the franchisee a greater mark-up than commonly available from standard equipment, apparel, and accessories vendors.
Renewal of the franchise term at the end of the initial term entails a review of the success of the Franchise and an adjustment of fees and royalties up or down to more closely reflect actual market conditions. The Franchise may be transferred to a new location, subject to territory availability and prior approval. Other terms and conditions apply.
In addition, if you sponsor a clinic for your golfers taught by Geoff Mangum, a portion of net proceeds can be immediately credited to your Franchise -- Geoff teaches a clinic at your course and earns a chunk of your Franchise base fee for you, and you can get the PuttingZone Academy at greatly reduced expense to you! Now that's win-win!
Join this growing community of serious teachers today! Let's make 2008 one heckuva memorable year together.
