Master and area developer franchises put you in charge of selling, opening and managing franchises in a set geographical area (like a country, state, region or city).
What would I be doing?
The master or area development franchisee’s job is very different from that of the direct franchisee—rather than run the franchise’s business, the master and area developer’s job is primarily to sell franchises to people and then manage the individual franchisees.
Let’s talk money
These franchises are more expensive but potentially more lucrative than individual franchises. Being in charge of a master franchise require superior sales and management skills. Both master and area developer franchises produce revenue through franchise fees, monthly royalties, supplies and equipment.
What kinds of industries need master franchisees?
Fast food restaurants, real estate agencies, and convenience food stores are three industries that typically employ master franchisees.
Teamwork makes the dream work
Master and area developer franchisees make money through royalties, so the success of their franchisees is paramount. If you’re an incredibly driven entrepreneur and want to have a hand in opening many franchises, being a master and area developer could be the right fit for you!
