Franchising is a simple business relationship. We regard Franchisees as fundamental to our future success and we are committed to expanding the brand name 'Rolopan Crêpes' with Franchisees as part of our team.
Rolopan Crêpes gives the rights to market the products from a retail outlet to an independent operator, the Franchisee, for a fixed period of time. Franchisees benefit by the provision of Rolopan Crêpes training programs, ongoing management advice, support and comprehensive operations manuals.
Franchisees must agree to the operating rules of Rolopan Crêpes and in return stand to reap the reward. Franchisees generally experience fewer worries than an independent operator and have the potential to achieve a higher level of success.Commonly asked questions about owning a Rolopan Crepes Franchise
