Franchises In Maryland

Maryland Franchise Opportunities

Maryland might be small (only slightly larger than Hawaii), but it’s mighty—the wealthiest state in the nation with the highest median household income and the most millionaires per capita. Maryland takes advantage of its close proximity to Washington, DC, and is home to many companies in the defense, aerospace, biotechnology and governmental fields.

City Selection

Though small, Maryland boasts an impressive selection of cities to choose from, ranging from major metropolitan areas to smaller towns:

  • Baltimore: With more than 2.7 million inhabitants of the metropolitan area, Baltimore has a thriving economy and plenty of culture. Referred to as a city of neighborhoods, “Charm City” is known for its harbor, the strong accent and health/science focus.

  • Silver Spring: A major business hub that lies in the northern part of the Washington, DC area, Silver Spring offers many opportunities for new business.

Maryland also requires franchises to give potential franchisees a franchise disclosure document and a copy of the proposed agreement prior to any franchise purchase.
