International companies keen to establish themselves on our islands are increasingly opening up their doors to the possibility of franchising with local entrepreneurs. The franchising question has recently become a hot topic especially in highly competitive sectors like the real estate industry.
Franchising is the process of coming to a business agreement between an established brand and an interested party (the franchisee). Typically, this process allows the franchisee to benefit from the brand’s trademark or trade-name, procedures and processes while following successfully proven business guidelines. Franchise owners may also look forward to organisation assistance, training, merchandising, marketing and management.
