Preferred Vendors: An Extension of our Brand
Thank you for your interest in working with Waxing the City. Our preferred vendors are an extension of our brand, and therefore, we are very careful when it comes to selecting companies to add to our list.
Can you enhance our business model?
We invest the time to research your product or service, your company’s background and reputation, and how your offerings can improve the Waxing the City experience for our franchisees and customers. In return, we ask that you spend the time to understand our business model and follow our procedures for the Preferred Vendor Application Process, outlined below, including a $300 application fee per submission.
Please note we do have established relationships with a network of current preferred vendors, many that are specific to our brand. With that said, we never know how our current relationships and needs will change, so we are willing to entertain proposals.
Create a proposal that is specific to Waxing the City. You will want to define your competitive advantage. For example, please detail how your product or service will:
- Enhance our brand and make it more attractive to customers or franchisees.
- Improve the waxing experience of a customer
- Increase the revenue of a franchisee’s studio.
- Increase the efficiency of a franchisee, or save them time and headaches.
Submit the non-refundable $300 application fee using our secure payment portal through Authorize.Net. Your proposal will not be reviewed until this payment is received.
Send your proposal to Waxing the City in the form of a MS Word document or a PowerPoint presentation. Please keep your proposal simple and concise. Email your information to firstname.lastname@example.org and include the transaction ID number of your application fee in the subject of your email.
A vendor review panel meets every 6 weeks to discuss any proposals that have been received. At that time, we consider all initial information. If we believe the proposal warrants further discussion, you will be contacted to provide us with more information.
We ask that you please follow this protocol through the entire consideration process. Due to our high volume of calls and email messages, we strongly discourage additional follow up on your part, and we request that you wait for our review panel to contact you. Following this protocol will allow us to give your proposal the time and attention it deserves.
Again, thank you for considering Waxing the City.
