How do I become a Franchisee?

All prospective Franchisees are required to submit an application to The Lott, and are assessed against the following three key criteria:

  • the suitability of the applicant;
  • the suitability of the business; and
  • the ability to generate a sufficient financial return for The Lott.

When an application is received for a new site, The Lott reviews the business and site location to determine if the franchise criteria can be met. Face to face interviews with prospective retailers and any supervisors are also conducted to assess the suitability and ability of the applicant.

Finally, a minimum of two prospective retailers and/or supervisors are required to successfully complete the New Retailer Program, consisting of a two week competency-based training program, prior to the commencement of selling lottery products.

For more information on the Application Process please refer to our Franchise Information Kit below.
