How it works:

You pay a Franchise sign-up fee outlined in our information pack, which entitles you to operate as a franchise and which covers the costs of what Terrene Life™ Head Office provides in your starter pack which is outlined below.

For each client that signs up, you would purchase registration kits from us at R1150 per kit, and an exponentially smaller fee per extension and restart. There would also be a 2% monthly royalty fee (based on turnover) and 5% monthly advertising fee, payable for the lifetime of your franchise. Alternatively, these two fees can be waived and kits are charged at R1550 each (see Alternate Payment Model) which works out at approximately the same value per month, but with less admin. 

Should we decide to run a national promotion with reduced prices and where you are given no option but to partake, we will bear the cost of any discounts offered.

Where we run a national promotion and give you the option to take part or not, the discount will be split equally between you and us.

You may at any time run a local special promotion, subject to our prior approval in terms of the promotional discount, the geographical area of the promotion and the period of the promotion. The full cost of the discount would be to your expense. This limitation is imposed purely to prevent Franchisees from getting into price wars and running promotions in such a way that they would potentially be detrimental to another Franchise. 

We limit the number of Franchisees per geographical area, based on the area size, population and demographics in an attempt to minimize competition between Franchisees.

Terms and Conditions

Franchises are designated and sold according to specific geographical locations and no Franchise may actively promote their own Franchise outside of their designated geographical area. Where the extended area does not have coverage by any other Franchise at the time of the promotion, special permission can be obtained from the Terrene Life™ Head Office to temporarily waive this limitation.

Notwithstanding the above stipulation, there is no limitation on Franchises accepting clients from areas outside of their designated area, provided that these clients have not been solicited in any way by the out-of-area Franchise. The purpose of this clause is to allow clients the freedom to deal with Franchises with whom they feel more comfortable and to refer family and friends who may not be within the designated area.
