All franchisees are required to use our MKU Real Estate team for the location search. With a strong network of experts around the country, we will use specific criteria and software to assist in finding the perfect location. Our team of MKU lenders will work with you to ensure you get funded for your loan. Our lenders work with banks that have invested in MKU clients and understand our model. Private bankers often do not have that leverage and may not approve your loan.
It is never possible to know in advance how long a location will take to open. On average the timeline to open is 9-12 months once the Franchise Agreement has been signed and longer if school is being built. At times there may be unforeseen setbacks related to permitting or land use permits that may extend the timelines.
