Am I Qualified?


Not only are we discerning and passionate about what goes into our drinks, we are discerning and passionate about our franchisee partnerships. Simply put, we want the right fit. Because at Bambu, we believe successful Shoppes are built upon a strong franchiser and franchisee relationship.

As such, there are a few traits that we hold near and dear to our hearts when considering potential partners, and some corresponding questions we will be asking our prospective franchisees to answer in detail. We realize our franchisees come from very diverse backgrounds, ages and reason for owning a Bambu. In some cases, “you”may refer to you, the principal or owner, and in other cases it may be someone in your organization or even someone who is acting on your behalf as the caretaker of your Shoppe to make Bambu a reality.
