Using your existing cash flow can take a lot of time and you will be responsible for all aspects of the business while limiting how quick you can grow.

This involves bringing on partners or investors who will have an equity stake in your business.
Franchising is a revolutionary way to duplicate your business’s success very quickly
FRANCHISE PLANS & DEFINITIONS
Also referred to as Master Franchising, this is when you sell the Area rights to an individual investor or group to develop it. The AR is focused on bringing franchisees into their area or building their own “Showcase” location. The AR shares in the royalty, so you have a vested partner in the area that will always support the brand mission. This is one of the fastest ways to achieve brand growth in entire regions like a state or county MSA.
A Multi-Unit Owner secures multiple units at an initial discount but agrees to a specific development schedule. This helps create a realistic pipeline of units to be developed over the next 3, 5, 7 or 10 years. The Multi Unit Developer option for investors working under a franchise agreement to enables them to open several franchise units in the specified area they have purchased the rights to. This enhances brand awareness in a given locale very quickly.
The Master Developer is another territory development option which is like that of the Multi-Unit except that areas they buy the rights to are usually larger and Exclusive.
Much like the Area Representative, but this is International. In order to be ready for International growth your business will need to have a strong foundation but be adaptable enough to new cultures to remain successful. ZOR411 provides much experience and access to develop your Master Rep program.

Single unit franchise agreement:
With a single unit franchise agreement, the franchisor will grant a franchisee a license to operate one unit in a specific location. The franchisor will protect the operator from direct competition with other franchisees within a certain radius or specific postal codes, usually within few miles.
Multi-unit franchise agreement:
A multi-unit franchise agreement allows the franchisee to open a certain number of franchise units within the protected territories or areas they select from available franchise locations. This is a great option for those that have franchise operation experience or already own a single franchise unit and want to rapidly expand their business and income potential.
Area Representative Agreement:
An Area Representative (AR) is someone in the unique position of controlling the development rights for a given area. This territory can be a major metropolitan area, an entire city, or even a whole State. The partner buys the rights to market and helps develop the territory for the business. By assisting with this growth, the AR can benefit financially from the initial fees and on-going monthly fees collected within the area, as well as, the territorial value appreciation as the Brand matures.
Under the umbrella of a master franchise territory agreement, the franchisee obtains exclusive rights to develop, own and operate international franchise units within entire geographic regions such as metropolitan areas, counties, states or even foreign countries. The master franchise owner acts as a sub-franchisor and collects royalties for each franchise unit developed under the master franchise agreement while still maintaining all the benefits of the original franchisor. One of the benefits of a master franchise agreement is the ability to offer either single unit or multi-unit franchise licenses for owners that will operate their franchise unit(s) under your master agreement.
