Our business success and ongoing support for franchisors and customers has earned us many awards and articles of recognition. These are from America’s top business publications, including the International Franchise Association www.franchise.org, which is the leading organization for franchisors around the world. Throughout our history, Ziebart International Corporation has been actively involved in the International Franchise Association and it’s executives have chaired a number of key committees.
Entrepreneurs interested in areas outside the United States and Canada have three levels of opportunities with Ziebart; a master franchise, a regional franchise or a location-only franchise. Master franchisees assume responsibility for developing and sub-franchising a network of stores in an entire country or specific area, usually referred to as the ‘licensed territory’. A regional franchisee has a region that he will develop an agreed upon number of stores in but he owns and operates all the stores himself, and is not licensed to sub-franchise, like the master franchisee. Location-only franchises are self explanatory. Each franchisee can own more than one location-only franchise.
