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. If not carried out correctly, however, this can also be a costly drain on a company's time, energy, and money.

By now, bitcoin has become a household word. The idea of a digital, unregulated "cryptocurrency" elicits strong responses. Some have heralded bitcoin as revolutionary. Others, such as JPMorgan Chase CEO Jamie Dimon, denounced it as a "fraud." But in January of this year, Dimon walked that comment back, and declared, “The blockchain is real.” Why the change?

China is hot, as is much of Asia. So is Latin America. Hot for what? For expansion-minded U.S. franchise brands seeking growth opportunities. In a trend that accelerated with the onset of the Great Recession, U.S. franchisors have been looking overseas with greater focus for the past three-plus years.

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.

When I first went to China in late 1982 there were no foreign brands operating in the country, and everyone wore Mao jackets and rode a bicycle. The term "middle-class consumer" did not apply. People shopped at government-owned stores and street vendors.
