Franchising 101

“Owning a franchise allows you to go into business for yourself, but not by yourself.”
A franchise provides franchisees with a certain level of independence where they can operate their business.

The International Franchise Association is committed to educating prospective franchisees on the dynamics of franchising and providing them with information to begin their evaluation of whether to become a franchisee. Beginning with the adoption in 1970 of the first franchise disclosure requirement in California.
