RESTART ENERGY FRANCHISE MODEL IN DETAIL

   

 

 

Introducing the RED Franchise

 

Restart Energy’s franchise program is a unique opportunity to become personally involved in its mission to re-invent the way energy is bought, sold, and traded globally – through the RED ecosystem – a global, privatized, decentralized energy supply platform.

First, to become a franchisee, a company needs to own a certain number of MWAT tokens to operate.  And to purchase them, you need to participate in RED ENERGY ICO, which will be held in January 2018.

What is the RED Franchise?

 

The RED Franchise (RED-F) is an exclusive business opportunity available to MWAT Token

holders. It is an innovative, tested, and successfully operating model that is already being used in the European Union.  By granting the opportunity for MWAT token holders to create their own energy retail business, RED ENERGY is merging decentralized blockchain technology with free market principles.

RED Franchise Types & Tiers

 

There are two franchise models to work with the RED ecosystem.

 

Type A - Franchise Owner of a Power Retail Company

 

In a Type A franchise, Restart Energy would work together with the Master-Franchisee to assist in setting-up its own power retail company, and the Master-Franchisee would be the one to enter into a new market and establish his business.

The Master-Franchisee would take on all risk and expenses to create a market, and Restart Energy would provide technical, infrastructural, process automation, marketing and sales support. The Master-Franchisee would need to provide the financial and management capacity for setting up a power retail company.

Master Franchisee would receive a full power retail business and its business cooperation includes:

  • Assistance for creation & operation of own power retail company
  • Right to use Restart Energy’s brand and business model including software and franchise infrastructure
  • Control over revenues
  • Technical Training for all staff and employees
  • Marketing and Branding package
  • Country Promotion for the months leading up to and after launch, paid for by Restart Energy, to promote the RED ecosystem and franchise business
  • Access to Complete Energy Supply CRM Software with 100% process automation
  • Access to Restart Energy specialized personnel and management to assist and fully support the franchise and its owners
  • Energy & gas trading, balancing and forecasting technical support

 

The advantages of becoming a franchisee:

 

  • Higher yields and strong cash flow
  • Ownership of power retail company
  • Cross selling of existing customer database
  • High process automation to deal with large numbers of low volume consumers with high margins.
  • Unique selling points and ecosystem

Having said that, we would like to stress that there are high capital requirements and the necessity to take the risk of entering new markets.

 

 Type B – Reselling / Brokering

 

The type B franchisee model means that the owner would simply act as a retailer or broker with full support of Restart Energy.

 Type B Franchise owner would receive:

  • Right to create and sell sub-franchises
  • Part of revenues from all sub-franchises
  • A comprehensive franchise kit with all relevant information for the target market. This is modelling off our already successful franchise kit provided to European partners.
  • Training for all staff and employees
  • Marketing and Branding support
  • Local Promotion for the months leading up to and after the launch, paid for by Restart Energy to promote the RED ecosystem and franchise business
  • Access to the Agent Module, offering the ability to add new franchises, see energy consumption and manage clients
  • Access to the Front Desk Module of RED CRM
  • Access to Restart Energy management, from where we can assist and fully support the franchise and its owners

As a reseller/broker, companies would be entitled to obtaining a percentage of all revenues made by all other franchises in the target country (typically 10%), plus the revenues generated from direct sales, in the form of signing premium plus passive consumption commission.

This type of franchise has obvious benefits: it offers low or no risk and Restart Energy covers all the costs of expansion in the new market

RED Franchise Tiers

 

Owning a certain number of RED MWAT tokens grants holders free access to one of four RED Franchise tiers and to the income from selling those energy contracts. It is important to note that at a franchisee is required to hold a certain number of tokens. It is not a form of payment to Restart Energy.

Type A - Master Franchise Token Tiers/Country:

 

Besides holding a minimum amount of MWAT tokens, Type A - Franchise owners will be required to meet Restart Energy minimum capital requirements and pass business conduct and reputation due diligence.

Type B - Franchise Token Tiers:

10,000 Tokens - RED City Franchise - allows token holders to sell energy in their city of residence

100,000 Tokens - RED Regional Franchise - allows token holders to sell energy in an entire region of their country of residence

1,000,000 Tokens - Red Country Franchise - allows token holders to sell energy in their entire country of residence

10,000,000+ Tokens - RED Master Franchise - gives the token holder exclusive rights in his/her country of resident and the option to create sub-franchises inside that country.

As mentioned above, Restart Energy is already using the franchise model which is described in the company’s Whitepaper and it is available in its website. Restart Energy   has successfully developed a multi-channel sales strategy, by rapidly identifying market

opportunities and using local resources, such as micro-entrepreneurs, through the first retail energy franchise in the European Union.
