When a business is successful, demand for the product or service often justifies opening the business in other locations throughout the state or country.
Business owners can capitalize on that demand and grow quickly by franchising the business.
Franchising is defined as allowing business licensing so others to sell or market the product or service in another location.

A franchising and distribution lawyer may also advise on strategy and financial issues related to the franchisor and franchisee relationship.
