01

LAUNCH

You’ve got a successful business with brand equity and a proven system. Ready to turn it into a franchise?

02

EMERGING

Many of the decisions a franchisor makes in the emerging years of the business will have long-term impact. That’s why it’s critical to have the right legal partner at this – and at every stage – of franchising.

03

GROWTH

With 20 or more units in your franchise system, you’ve got your sights set on the next milestones. There’s a lot you need to know to grow to your 50-unit and 100+ unit targets.

04

MATURITY

You’ve got 100 or more units in your franchise system and are ready for even more rapid growth. There’s a lot of work ahead of you.

05

EXIT

Your franchise brand is a household name. You’ve made it. After years of building your business, it’s time to start planning your exit.
