Businesses utilize the franchise model to engage with reputable investors and grow their brands (aka franchisees). Franchisors depend on franchise cbrokerss to identify potential franchisees. They like working with advisors that are knowledgeable about their brand and the sort of franchisees who will best represent the franchise brand. Franchise brokers and franchisors are in a “brokering” relationship. Franchise cbrokerss, in the viewpoint of the franchisor, are facilitating a deal between the franchisor and an investor (franchisee) in exchange for a fee (paid by the franchisor).
“Broker” and “consultant” are commonly used interchangeably in the franchising sector.
