Posted by Laura Dunn on Oct 14, 2016

Owning a franchise takes skill, patience and determination. But what happens when you want to own more than one?

Multi-unit ownership is a popular business option for franchisee’s, particularly after the success of a first franchise.

Before embarking on this ambitious business journey, what benefits can franchise owners expect?


Development of skillset: previous franchise experience goes without saying, but multi-unit ownership requires entrepreneurs to ‘up their game’ by furthering their skillset and management experience.

Long-term plan: if a ‘get rich quick’ business is not for you, then a multi-unit franchise ownership might appeal. Enabling an entrepreneur to build a business over time, multi-unit ownership helps to set the groundwork for other franchises and business options.

Support: A good rapport and productive relationship with your current franchisor can help to build a strong platform for future franchise platforms. If your first franchise has been a success, you are more likely to be approved to expand the franchise network you manage.

Self-reliant: Are you a strong character with the desire to take an idea and implement it? Multi-unit ownership requires a strong manager with the drive to be self-reliant.

Increased uniformity: Multi-unit ownership enables you to rollout what works and implement a structure across your franchises and future acquisitions. Use your management model as a blueprint, and tailor accordingly depending on customer and geographical location.

Your team: You are only as success as your team, and a great one can help you achieve big things. Use your team to help with the running of your other franchises, hiring talent as and when required.
