Small Business Franchise Information and Resources
Wirth Business Credit
Some entrepreneurs may begin their business with the intent of franchising their operations; other businesses may elect to franchise an existing business because it has been so successful. For franchisors, franchising is a means of equity financing in which the franchisor "sells off" expansion rights in the business. In return, the franchisor typically receives an initial franchise fee, service fees, equipment sale or lease fees, and royalties.
