How Does Franchising Work?

Franchising your business means opening extra outlets anywhere in the world through the sale of franchise rights to independent investors. These investors will then have the rights to use your brand name and operating system. A franchisee normally pays you an initial franchise fee in return for the rights to open and operate a business under your franchise trademark and for the training you will provide on how to operate the business. Franchisees will also pay an ongoing periodic royalty fee for continued support, training, marketing, and other services.
