So... now let's recap with a few Common Questions Regarding Ownership:

MONSTER ENTERTAINMENT, LLC offers you the opportunity to operate an entertainment center for children and adults that features miniature golf, video games, redemption games and other activities.
The estimated initial investment to establish a MONSTER MINI GOLF ranges from $431,000 to $520,000 including a franchise fee of $30,000. (this is a complete turnkey business, we have included everything from the Golf Course & Props to paperclips and working capital. To see breakdown of investment costs...click here)
The continuing services, or “royalty fee”, is 7% of your gross sales and is paid weekly. This fee entitles you to use of the MONSTER MINI GOLF service mark, use of our distinctive system, support, marketing assistance including the web site monsterminigolf.com in which you will become part of, ongoing business development and consulting, and other benefits that come with being a MONSTER MINI GOLF franchisee.
Well, for beginners it's like comparing a real automobile to a kit-car. (Odds are you probably can't build a new Lexus on our own...and if you can, you probably do not have any interest in owning a Mini Golf course)

The construction of a Monster Mini Golf is not only designed to last for years but the entire concept is a “complete package” that is designed to work. We do not build “cookie cutter” theater type sets that might fall down if leaned against too hard. We build you a solid golf course that compares to no other Glow-in-the-Dark Course. We work with you in designing your entire location and you as a Franchisee, get help with artwork and prop ideas.

In addition, since we have years of experience with the concept, we know what works and works great, and…what doesn't. We know what is safe and what isn't. These are things that you shouldn't want to find out through trial and error. That is one of the many reasons why you might be considering a Franchise of any kind. Along with buying a proven system and name, you are buying the founders and management's experience and expertise and a concept that will be recognized as quality.

Keep in mind that creating a business isn't like "Field of Dreams". Just because you build it, doesn't mean that they will come. We as a Franchisor work with you and aid in the most important part of your business...the marketing, the training, your profit margins, and the philosophy behind our 1950's style customer service. We do not build your course and then shake hands and wish you good luck, we continue to work with you to help you build and shape your business. We provide you with ads, promotions, experience and support that does not exist in a box. We have a passion in our business and look for Franchisees that have passion as well, because that is an important factor in longevity and success. If you plan a visit to meet us and see our concept in action, you will see Monster Mini Golf is in a category all it's own.

Yes, you will be granted a "protected area" around your designated, approved location where no other Monster Mini Golf franchises will be placed. The protected area will be specific to your location, based on populations, distances and drive times to existing locations. These protected areas will each be handled on an individual basis, based on the specifics of the geographic area each individual franchisee is granted. We feel that placing a set equation on a country wide level is not beneficial to all Franchise locations and should be handled accordingly in the best interest of the Franchisee.
When searching for a site you will be in the capable hands of the Franchise Development Team to our Real Estate team, you’ll be guided through finding a great location in your area. A member of our team or an authorized broker will assist you in your site selection. Patrick will help you set your terms, Negotiate and secure your lease under the most advantageous terms possible.
Upon the signing and execution of your lease documents you will begin the build-out process, including site plans and design documents. Then, you'll receive a detailed checklist including everything you need to handle from the signing of the lease to the opening.
From the time you sign your lease and have the keys to your building we will have your doors open in approximately 30-45 days.
The MONSTER MINI GOLF name and reputation is an important part of your business. You will spend a minimum of $10,000 (this is already accounted for in the build-out investment pkg) on grand opening advertising during the first three months of operations. Monster Entertainment will assist in not only the purchasing of ads, but will also provide layouts and promotional ideas on an on-going basis.
You will participate in an initial training course of approximately 2-3 weeks. (10 days with us on location. These 10 days are broken up into 3 long weekends prior to your opening. We understand that you have an ongoing life prior to opening your Monster Mini Golf and try our best to work with your schedule. Then we spend the first week with you at your new location.) The initial program will focus on all aspects of the MONSTER MINI GOLF franchise system; and is comprised of classroom and on the job training.
MONSTER ENTERTAINMENT, LLC will periodically schedule visits as well as schedule Franchisee meetings throughout the course of the franchise term, which are designed to provide operation assistance and guidance in various aspects of your MONSTER MINI GOLF Franchised Business. You will also receive a MONSTER MINI GOLF confidential Operations Manual that contains specifications, standards, operating procedures and suggestions to aid you in the operation of your MONSTER MINI GOLF Franchised Business.
The initial term of the Franchise Agreement is five years from the date the Franchise Agreement is signed. The franchise is renewable for 3 terms of five years, providing you have complied with the provisions of the Franchise Agreement.
No, it doesn't work that way. Franchises are awarded, not purchased by just any individual. We're looking to award franchises to a select group of highly qualified individuals. You might be among them. Basically, we're looking for outgoing, energetic individuals, with strong people and sales skills, as well as outstanding customer service and relationship-oriented talents. You should also display exceptional maturity, sound judgment, and stability and possess the highest qualities of excellence, honesty, and integrity.

This is a great opportunity for a wide variety of talented people, including husband and wife entrepreneurial teams. Previous experience in retail, restaurant management, entertainment, teaching, or small business is a plus but is not required.

2. The next step is to come to visit us here in Rhode Island to see Monster Mini Golf in Action and meet the Co-Founders Patrick & Christina Vitagliano as that is the only way to get in idea of what we are all about. Yes...you read that correctly. You actually get to sit and speak with the people that created the concept from the beginning! Christina & Patrick have a personal Franchisor goal of meeting each and every franchisee. In fact, no one is ever awarded a Franchise unless they have met with them and they intend to keep this goal. How many franchisees out there actually get to spend time with the creators of the concept?

If you have any questions, in the meantime, please feel free to contact Christina or Patrick at (401) 454-8100 or franchise@monsterminigolf.com
