Why franchising?

Did you know that one in seven businesses in the world is a franchise, equivalent to around two million franchised companies worldwide?

Franchising allows the franchisor to grow their brand and revenue with minimal direct investment, meanwhile franchisees can expand their business confidently under the protection of a recognised brand identity.
