Some times fast casual places don’t think that they can franchise. They may not know what franchising can do for them. If you are just company owned you are going to have to take out major loans to become bigger. Instead of having a whole bunch of debt you can just become a franchise. Most franchises start out with a few dozen extra locations but then they become bigger and better than they ever were before.
- They are wanting to grow their business and make more money
- They cannot grow their business if they are company owned.
- They would have a lot of debt if they took out loans instead of franchising.
