Student franchises for $1

Our mission

We are a social enterprise. Our mission is helping young entrepreneurs achieve financial freedom. By owning your own franchise.

Your opportunity

Franchises offer a turnkey system for making money. They save you the trial and error of creating your own business.

But existing franchises are expensive for students. For example, other student franchises require:

  • Initial fee and investment: $2,925–$14,010

  • Working capital: $1,500–$5,250

  • Royalty and advertising fees: 24% of revenues
     

In contrast, a Third Door franchise requires:

  • Initial fee and investment: $1

  • Working capital: ~$0

  • Royalty and advertising fees: 10% of revenues

 

A Third Door franchise can launch your career. And help you achieve financial freedom.

Do you have what it takes?

We're seeking applicants who are:

  • Relentlessly resourceful (you make things happen)

  • Highly conscientious (you get things done)

  • High integrity (you are trustworthy)

 

You'll have signs of excellence:

  • National STEM winner

  • National sports winner

  • Newspaper editor, published author, debate champion

  • National-level artist, musician, filmmaker, actor, performer

  • Successful business owner

  • Overcoming personal adversity
     

We look for 3 things when we hire people. We look for intelligence, we look for initiative or energy, and we look for integrity. And if they don’t have the latter, the first two will kill you, because if you’re going to get someone without integrity, you want them lazy and dumb.

Our Founder's Story

The single most valuable thing a student can do is start the right business.


This is a bold claim. Why am I so confident?


Because starting the right business transformed my life. In less than a year, I went from welfare to earning over $100K/year. For the first time, I had financial freedom. I paid off my debts. I had power over my time.


How did I do it? I started a service company called Third Door Marketing that creates social media posts for companies.


It was not risky. My start-up costs were a few hundred dollars. And I did not work long hours. In fact, I only worked part-time.


I know this sounds too good to be true. But it’s real. You can do it too.


Here is the math:


4 hours per week per client

  • 2 hours to create 3 posts for 3 platforms

  • 30 minutes for revisions

  • 30 minutes for tracking and reporting

  • 30 minutes for 1 client meeting

  • 30 minutes for emails and posting

Roster of 3 clients

  • 3 clients X 4 hours/week = 12 hours/week

  • 3 clients X $1,100/month = $3,300/month, or $39,600 per year

This means you can work part-time, but earn a full-time income. And you can reduce your hours by becoming more efficient or hiring contractors.


When I was a student, I wished someone had helped me start Third Door Marketing. It would have saved me years of financial stress. It would have let me work on things I really cared about.
 
That’s why I’ve decided to offer top students their own Third Door franchise for $1. It’s a turnkey system for making money that includes training and finding clients. And the royalty is only 10%. In comparison, other student franchise companies charge an up-front fee of thousands of dollars and a royalty over 20%.
