Making money in the hospitality industry has become more challenging over the past few years so owners have begun considering a franchising model as part of their portfolio. By adopting a franchise model for one of your brands, you can set up your hospitality business for exponential future growth. Expanding your company’s value through franchising your strong brand is a route every F&B should consider.
