The standard method of franchising, known as “direct franchising” is just one system that a company might use to build its brand across the world. Another method called master franchising offers a different way of doing it. It comes with several distinct advantages that can make it a better choice for the franchisor.

Basically, the way Master Franchising works is a franchisor sells the rights to develop the franchise in a specific territory to one person or entity called the master franchisee. As the master franchisee it would then be your job to seek out franchisees to operate business underneath you, as if they were subcontractors. Your franchisees pay their royalty fees to you, and you get to keep a percentage of those fees while the rest goes to the franchisor company...

More About Buying a Master Franchises Business in Canada

Not just anyone should be a master franchisee. Not only does take a significant fee to buy master franchising rights, but you also need to exhibit a certain blend of sales, management, and leadership traits to be well-suited to it.

A master franchisee’s first job is to find franchisees to buy units in his territory. If you can’t sell, if you can’t get people interested in your franchise, then you won’t go very far. You will also have to recruit, train, and support the franchisees that you hire, and this is why you’ll need to function well in a support role. As a master franchisee you are acting as a sort of mini-franchisor, so you have to take on many more responsibilities than a typical franchisee...

The incentive is there to hire the best people and train them properly since the master franchisor gets a portion of their royalty payments. So the master franchisor can reap a bounty of rewards if successful, but so to must they also face a greater number of headaches. Master franchising is not for newcomers. This is not only true because of the high investment level, but also for the sheer level of business savvy it takes to really nail it.

But master franchising gives you a method to entering the franchise game at a higher level. It is closer to a partnership as the franchisor is leveraging the master’s capital to grow the company, and the master is using the franchise to further their business portfolio. Both parties need the other to perform their best for the system to work.

Although master franchising offers many benefits like faster growth and better access to capital, it is only as good as its weakest link. If the franchisor’s business model isn’t up to par than even the best master franchisor will have trouble bringing the company to market. But on the other hand, even a solid gold business model won’t be enough to make a splash if it is put in the hands of an ineffective master franchisor.

The master franchise system is popular with cleaners, fast food chains, convenience stores, real estate firms, and computer equipment providers. These are business markets that are in demand in most territories, so the franchisors can gain a lot by choosing the master franchise route. The increased market penetration and faster growth are why companies in these industries go with master franchising.
