Total franchise establishments have grown 3.5% in 2021 according to FRANdata. With more business owners looking into the franchise model, MPS Restaurant segment leader Neal Kanipe wrote this article for Modern Restaurant Management guiding potential franchise owners through the planning and opening process. Neal’s perspective as an experienced restaurant designer helps him offer useful insights on how prospective owners can maximize their investment and smoothly navigate their way to profitability.
