An international presence can add prestige to a brand, instill pride in employees and franchisees, and add to a company's bottom line. For franchisors going international, selecting the right markets and franchisees will greatly improve their chances of success.

And from overseas, foreign-based franchisors saw depressed U.S. real estate prices and increased availability of prime locations as an opportunity to penetrate the U.S. market and establish a beachhead with American consumers.
