What’s YOUR Franchise Flavour?

As a potential Franchisee, you have the following business opportunities to choose from:

  • New Franchise set up of a Sorbet Salon, Nail Bar or Dry Bar, Sorbet Man or Candi & Co.
  • Convert your salon, or another existing salon, to a Sorbet Salon

How Much do I Need?

So how much will you need to make your Sorbet dream a reality? It’s pretty simple, really. The exact amount of your investment will depend on the size and condition of your selected store. This varies from site to site. Sorbet requires a 50% deposit of this amount and additional funding may be obtained in order to settle the balance.
