A management franchise is generally a business that requires the taking on of staff to carry out the daily tasks of running the business. While the manager oversees the running of the business. It can be a great business option if you have money to invest but don't want to get involved with manual tasks.

The ultimate goal is to grow the business to a point that will support the employment of workers to take over the labour. Therefore boost the total work capacity of the business. Other management franchises depend on initial investment to take on employees from the outset. The initial investment will be paid back in time as the business becomes profitable.
A management franchise business can be either business-to-business or business-to-consumer depending on the products or services offered.
