Franchisor can give a master franchise. There is a difference between franchise and master franchisor. Master franchisor is all about having that enthusiasm in the veins to run a business successfully, it’s about building the foundation of a business. A master franchise is a franchising contract in which the master franchisor (the owner of the brand name) hands over the control of the franchising activities in a specified territory to a person or entity, called the "master franchisee" while a franchise is a business system in which private entrepreneurs purchase the rights to open and run a location of a larger company.

A franchisor gives the master franchise which further has three choices to expand. These options include regular franchise, multi unit franchises and areas to develop. In regular franchise, franchisor gives the right to run the business at a particular location, multi unit franchises includes an entity to operate business at multiple locations and to develop the business across the country comes under areas to develop part. “There are many restaurants running successfully in Delhi which are single unit without being them franchise able. For us, to open and operate a restaurant is to ensure that the quality and standardisation needs to be maintained. And, to achieve this we actually spend couple of years with those restaurants and made them franchise able and now opening the restaurants across the country,” avers Sana Chopra, Executive Director at Carls Jr. Restaurants LLC. We have embassy restaurant at one place and now we are opening same embassy restaurants across the globe following the same model, she adds further.

Master Franchise actually assists the brand with the hierarchy i.e., how many people one needs, job description, et cetra. Also, one is able to hire his own people in Master Franchise instead of franchise where they are already bound to work with the provided corporate team whether they are compatible or not.

It is more than a plug in and plays process. It’s about involving in the whole process. “Carls Jr. Restaurant has done three years of extensive research with the brand before handling them the master franchise,” adds Sana.

Quality Maintenance
