Is your business in operation?

Although there is no law that requires the business to be operating to offer franchises, the recommendation of experts is that your business has at least two years of life to evidence that the business is proven and indicates the experience and profitability acquired.


Can you sell your business?

To franchise your business is essential that it be striking and generating interest in buyers, whether for its high profitability, differentiation from the competition, its concept or any other factor that attracts potential franchisees.


Is it replicable?

Your business must be able to be executed in any circumstance or place, or at least must have the ability to be adapted to be operated without losing its essence.
