What characteristics does CabanUp look for in an Affiliate?
We are looking for honest, hardworking individuals who are excited about owning and operating their own business and have access to the capital to do so. We also believe that CabanUp can add great value as a “bolt-on” operation to a pre-existing operation.
What is the total investment to become a CabanUp Affiliate?
The total initial investment is approximately $75,000 but costs will vary depending on location and macro-economic conditions.
Can I choose my own equipment?
There is some flexibility but becoming an Affiliate entails agreeing to use the specified core equipment items. This is to ensure the protection of the brand, but we have the experience of thousands of set-ups over 5 seasons and in all manner of weather and have an appreciation for which equipment lasts the longest while looking the best.
Will you help me find a site?
Not at this time. Potential affiliates need to know the geographic location they wish to serve and be able to serve it
How big of a location do I need?
Although it can be helpful, a physical store-front type location is not a requirement to run a CabanUp affiliate! We’ve also seen past successes using a “pop-up” model.
