Franchising can help a business accelerate growth and expansion.  By granting franchise licenses to independent franchisees, a franchisor can establish multiple locations quickly and efficiently, all while leveraging the resources, capital, and efforts of franchisees.

Raising Capital 

Franchising provides a way to raise capital without incurring debt or giving up equity.  Franchisees invest their capital to cover the costs of setting up and operating their franchise units, enabling the franchisor to expand its brand with minimal financial expense.

Becoming a Franchisor can provide a continuous revenue stream in the form of ongoing royalties or revenue sharing.  Franchisees pay regular fees or share revenue based on a percentage of their sales.  This provides predictable and stable sources of income.
