Does Franchising Make Sense For Your Business?
STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. -- Are you interested in rapidly expanding your business? You might consider franchising, especially if your business model is easily replicated.
A franchise is a legal and commercial relationship between the owner of a trademark, service mark, trade name, or advertising symbol and an individual or group wishing to use that identification in a business.
In the simplest form, a franchiser owns the right to the name or trademark and sells that right to a franchisee. This is known as product/trade name franchising.
The more complex form, business format franchising, involves a broader ongoing relationship between the two parties.
Business format franchises often provide a full range of services, including site selection, training, product supply, marketing plans, and even assistance in obtaining financing.
With franchising or any other business-growth initiative, you will need to have a competent team of experts and advisers in place, such as your lawyer, tax adviser and banker.
