Franchising is a growing business model worldwide. According to the International Franchise Association, franchising grew by thousands of establishments in 2018 in the USA. In the UK, the number of people employed in franchised businesses grew by 89,000 from 2015 to 2018. Many businesses have a network of franchisees spread over both of these countries and more.
