Who Makes a Great Bach to Rock Franchisee?

We’re looking for passionate and experienced music school franchise partners interested in making a difference in their community.

The Ideal Franchisee

Our franchises are typically run by leaders with strong backgrounds in management or business, who may also have a passion for music or childhood education. The investor-owner need not be a musician, but he or she does need the ability to build a team of energetic, dependable and committed musicians.

The franchisee will play an important role in promoting the school to the community, which is the most important aspect of marketing a Bach to Rock school. That connection to the community will drive your business.

The day-to-day heavy lifting of the business will be done by a full-time school director, leaving the franchisee the ability to focus on more of the activities that generate sales and profitability. Because each school has a manager, franchisees are not shackled to a single location. The model was built from day one for franchisees who want to start with one school and eventually grow a chain, multiplying their income with each school they open.

The Bach to Rock business model begins with a full-time director who runs the day-to-day operations of your school, including the hiring of professional musicians as part-time music instructors. As your school’s enrollment grows toward our target of 500 students or more, you will add more full-time support staff and hourly instructors. It’s important for a franchisee to have the ability to sell and promote, as well as a knack for managing people.

We look for franchisees who are outgoing and want to feel a more meaningful connection to their communities. Our franchisees need not be musicians themselves, but having a passion for music and for educating children will help you better relate to why Bach to Rock employees work as hard as they do.

Music Store Franchises: Getting into the Numbers

The typical investment necessary to open a Bach to Rock franchise is $255,500 to $549,500 and our franchise fee is $45,000.

Franchisees should have a net worth of at least $500,000 and a minimum liquidity of $100,000. A college education or business experience of at least five years is a must, and a background in finance or marketing is especially helpful. Of course, we’re still looking for that music-lover at heart.
