It is very easy to own a franchise. A family can do it. The only requirements are to do be able to do the tasks in the Think Heavenly Manual and follow the bylaws, support the co-op business model, support the Usolec Program, and Community Share Program should they decide to want to run their own. If not the Usolec Program and Community Share Program are national and international as well as local programs.
The expected cost to start one is donation only. Whatever they feel they can give to Think Heavenly Corporation. So what feels good to do and if they can do it.
They will be able to sell Think Heavenly Products if they can afford to buy them and if not there will be a sponsorship program in place for people whom want to Help the world become Heavenly and need some assistance to do that.
The cost of downloading the necessary Think Heavenly Manual to get started is something anyone can do. The Usolec Program and Community Share software downloads will be something that can be sponsored if families or interested individuals cannot afford but what to start their own.
Since, I currently do not have a thinkheavenly manual there are many out there with ideas for communittees to start with. Once I can start working on the manual then I will have one to download. There are church groups and others whom are working on greening their communitees within your area and if not I would just design your own. You can look around your town and see where there needs to be things that are better and apply that to your manual.
