Cross Border &
International Franchising

Canada has long been, and will continue to be, the most lucrative foreign market for U.S. franchisors that expand internationally. While the laws regulating franchising in Canada are less restrictive than their counterparts in the U.S., franchisors still require a complete and comprehensive strategy – legal and otherwise – prior to jumping across the border and offering franchises in this country. That’s where we come in…
