At the root of every franchise success story is the successful enterprise that started it all. The narratives are similar: a business that’s achieved a level of success based on a proven system is ready for the next stage of growth. Instead of pursuing that growth through a single business entity, the entrepreneur chooses to expand through franchising.

If your enterprise is at this stage of growth and you’re thinking of becoming a franchisor, congratulations. You’re about to embark on a different way of growing your business. In fact, as a franchisor you’ll be minding two businesses: your original brand and your franchise system.
