FlannelJax’s Teams Up with Franchise Fastlane to Fuel Aggressive Growth Plans

Minnesota-Based Axe-Throwing Franchise Unveils First Franchise Disclosure Document (FDD), Hires Industry Leading Franchise Sales Organization (FSO)

ST. PAUL, Minn. (PRWEB) May 29, 2019

FlannelJax’s, a new franchised axe-throwing and recreational sports establishment, has partnered with Franchise Fastlane, an accelerated turn-key franchise sales organization (FSO), to support FlannelJax’s aggressive franchise development goals it has set for 2019 and beyond.

FlannelJax’s recently completed its Franchise Disclosure Document (FDD) and will work with many qualified candidates in the coming years who are eager to bring FlannelJax’s to their community. FlannelJax’s opened its first establishment in St. Paul, Minnesota in 2018 and the brand is already preparing to open additional corporate locations in other U.S. markets, with a focus on franchising as the primary avenue for growth.

FlannelJax’s is owned by Metal Supermarkets, the world’s largest supplier of small-quantity metals. Metal Supermarkets has over 30 years of franchise experience with more than 90 locations across the United States, Canada and the United Kingdom. This experience makes them uniquely qualified to develop a successful network with this exciting new franchise venture.

“This is the perfect time to capitalize on the growing popularity of the axe-throwing experience,” said Stephen Schober, Chief Executive Officer of FlannelJax’s. “With a long and successful history of franchising with the Metal Supermarkets brand, we are uniquely qualified to handle all aspects of growth and development for our franchisees. We look forward to bringing this fun and successful concept to many more markets across the United States.”

Franchise Fastlane works closely with franchisors to perfect their discovery process, bring in qualified franchisee leads and drive explosive growth. The company will identify potential markets and franchisees and support FlannelJax’s franchise development strategy.

Ryan Zink, Franchise Fastlane’s CEO and Co-Founder, said that FlannelJax’s is in an ideal position ramp up franchise sales efforts with the rapid growth and popularity of experiential franchise concepts.

“FlannelJax’s is an innovative concept in an exciting space that appeals to a wide customer base,” said Zink. “From families and friends to parties and corporate team building, it’s a terrific way to get people to share a fun outing together. We’re excited to be working with FlannelJax’s to build their brand across the country.”
