A Franchise Disclosure Document (“FDD”) presents key components of the franchise program including the obligations of the franchisor and franchisees.
When it comes to growing new franchise locations, the franchisors goal is to add as many new franchisees as their system and market can sustain.
As franchise system development becomes more competitive franchise systems are employing a new strategy to grow their brand and increase franchise sales.
The composition of the franchise investment differs in key areas such as: franchise fees, royalty rates, territory protections and Item 19 disclosures.
On average, more than 34,500 franchise outlets are opened and over $25 billion has been invested by franchisees on an annual basis since 2010.
Data has become essential to having a successful franchise development team. Those that maximize the power of data will sell more franchises.
