Multi-Unit Franchising

For franchisors looking to expand their portfolio beyond single-unit franchising, we can help you take the next step forward in your franchise development efforts. The multi-unit franchise model allows franchisees to own and operate more than one franchise unit in a defined geographic region. Our franchise attorneys have substantial experience advising franchisors on the benefits and risks of moving to a multi-unit franchising system. In addition to helping you decide whether a multi-unit franchising arrangement is right for you, we will advise you on the types of structures that work best with your system in order to gain a competitive advantage. A well-structured system allocates risks appropriately and accelerates growth for your franchise system.

Multi-Unit Arrangements

Progressing to a multi-unit arrangement requires expertise that only an experienced franchise attorney can provide. We specialize in designing, drafting, and implementing a variety of multi-unit agreements and programs, including:

  • Area development agreements
  • Area representative agreements
  • Master franchise agreements

Our franchise attorneys have a thorough understanding of multi-unit franchising strategies. Our unique experience allows us to quickly identify any issues that may have an impact on your success and address them head on. With services to make your growth strategy simple and a team of attorneys excited to help you, let’s talk more about how we can help grow your brand.

Is your business ready to franchise or expand?

Whether you are exploring franchising for the first time or operating a well-developed franchise system, our franchise attorneys can answer your questions and advise you on the best course of action.
