If you want your business to grow through other people using your business ideas, franchises are not the only option. Many businesses can work well with a license agreement. A license agreement can avoid much of the expense of a franchise agreement. However, you must be very cautious to ensure that your license is not truly a franchise. We can assist you to ensure that your license agreement does not cross the line into a franchise.
