Growing a Franchise System

One of the special benefits of franchising is that it is one of the most transportable business methods available. There are few areas of business that have not been franchised, or parts of the globe that have not experienced the rapid growth of franchising as a business growth model.

The Dickinson Wright Franchise Law Team has experience in all phases of franchise system growth. We provide advice on specific issues to franchisors and their management teams, including:

• Mergers and acquisitions of franchise systems of various sizes

• Cross-Border expansion and structurings

• Master franchising agreements

• Area developer agreements

• Joint venture agreements

• Insolvency and restructuring

Given our extensive experience in franchise law, we also offer guidance to franchisors on how to grow a franchise system in a responsible and prudent manner that manages risk and optimizes profitability.
