Resources Overview

Many franchisors engage M&A Advisors to represent them in the sale of their businesses (or to help them find investors). This website includes a list of those who have experience with the buying and selling of franchisors. (These advisors also typically assist franchisors who seek investment.)

  • A franchisor seller, who wishes engage an M&A Advisor, is encouraged to contact these M&A Advisors to assist with the process.
