How to grow your business through franchising

Franchising is fundamentally a way in which an established business can expand its influence and reach by entering into an agreement with independent third parties under which the Franchisor permits Franchisees to use its trade name, trade mark and confidential business methods. In return, Franchisees accept certain restrictions upon the way that business is conducted, and which financially reward the Franchisor on the level of success achieved.
