The master franchise (or sub-franchisor)
is the most common form of franchisor-franchisee international franchise
relationship. In a master franchise arrangement, the U.S. franchisor
gives the foreign master franchisor the right to use the marks and
the system in connection with franchising in a particular territory
for a certain period of time. In that territory, the master franchisor
will act as the franchisor. It will typically be responsible for
developing leads for qualified franchisee prospects, for signing
the franchise agreements, for training new franchisees, for collecting
fees from franchisees in the territory, and for monitoring franchisee
compliance with system standards. The master franchisor usually
pays a portion of its revenues to the franchisor as royalties.
Some of the advantages of master franchise
relationship are: significant expansion without significant expense,
the burden of translating all franchise materials can be shifted
to the master franchisor, the master franchisor in the country can
provide training and support to franchisees easier than the U.S.
franchisor and more.
