If your ambitions stretch beyond owning and operating a single unit, or even multi-unit franchise, and you have serious capital to invest in the national rights to a brand and proven business system, you could be a candidate for investing in a Master Franchise or Area Developer.

Master Franchising

As a Master Franchisee, you would secure exclusive rights to develop the franchisor’s brand, trading style and system in a new country. Many franchisors from the Americas, the Southern Hemisphere and Europe have established overseas operations by granting the national Master Franchise rights to a local individual or organisation, which has then overseen that brand’s expansion, either by establishing owned outlets, recruiting a sub-franchised network or a mixture of the two. Many more are searching for serious entrepreneurial investors with the ambitions to establish their presence in new countries.
