Find a "masteur-franchiser"
Setting up your French franchise on American soil can be very lucrative indeed Americans crave franchises and chains of stores or restaurants, and many French Franchise projects have the potential to succeed in the United States.
Most companies that wish to implement their franchise in the US choose to go through a "Master Franchisor" who will lead several franchises in the same region..
the advantage of this method is to delegate tasks such as supervision and accurate monitoring of each franchise, recruiting new franchises or the training to master franchisor. This will allow you therefore have to supervise a more reasonable number of entities; it also simplifies the analysis of results and thus better control the decision making process and to analyze the evolution of the franchise.
The master-franchiser will have the role of the franchisor in its geographical area. This role will be to recruit and supervise franchisees and then pay them royalties to the franchisor.
