U.S. Franchising Trade Mission to Identify Potential Indian Master Franchisees

Mumbai –  What is the common link between Cricket, Kentucky Fried Chicken, and Curves for Women? All have launched profitable business ventures through the franchising model and have targeted growth plans for future expansions. To capitalize on this momentum, eleven U.S. franchisors will visit Mumbai on Monday, December 8, 2014, to identify potential master franchisees/licensees and area developers. This is the second Franchising Trade Mission organized by the U.S. Commercial Service (USCS) to visit India. In addition to Mumbai, the mission will also stop in Bangalore and New Delhi.

The eleven franchisors represent a wide spectrum of the most successful and sought-after U.S. businesses from a variety of food chains, construction products, and retail concepts.

Franchising represents a unique business concept since franchisees are able to adapt and implement a successful business model for a brand that has strong name recognition. While a large capital investment may be required to buy the rights to a franchise, franchising offers a quality partnership and, most notably, a proven business model.  This collaboration offers its Indian partner the opportunity to develop and promote new businesses in conjunction its parent company, which provides guidance and best practices to help maintain world-class quality, global recognition, and maximum profitability.
