This may not be what you were looking for, but all the info I am aware of I heard in these clips.

me and 2 others from our company sat in on a conference call with them after they reached out to us to see if we were interested. As a small company it just wasnt in our interest to invest what they were asking up front just to only get the local rights to something like "Bee Safe" which few if any potential and current customers have probably heard of. If they continue to grow their brand and name recognition than maybe. Their big pitch to us was that in Canada and other places around the world traditional apps are being strongly regulated even outlawed. So the answer is to get ahead of that for when it inevitably happens here in the U.S. Again, seems like a legit and growing company, just not for us for where are at right now. But if you're looking into organics, might be a good place to look into.

Not a fan of Franchises in our line of work.

Granted the Grounds guys are one of the fastest growing in the industry but they are not really growing as much as signing up new franchisee's

The biggest appeal of a franchise the ability to borrow money and the lender see this as safer than Chuck's mow blow and go. Banks feel like they can sell a subway sandwich shop faster than sally's subs.

If I were in the food industry something then yes, franchise is killer.
