What Does it Mean to Franchise a Business

What exactly does it mean to franchise a business? This is a question we often get from successful business owners interested in expanding their business. The answer is that franchising is something that should be used as an option (one of many) for the "evolutionary" step for the growth and development of a successful business looking for new avenues of growth.

Franchising essentially can be viewed a business owner incorporating what has worked for his/her business with a legal framework. This successful concept can then be sold and replicated by others who choose to become a franchisee of the company.

Getting started with franchising business requires much time, research and an honest evaluation of your current business systems and products.
