How Acquisitions Affect Franchisees

How do acquisitions affect franchisees? This question will be addressed much more frequently by management teams from both buyers and sellers as acquisitions become more common. Companies that franchise have caught the attention of private-equity firms, investment bankers, multi-brand franchisors, and Fortune 100 companies like Home Depot and UPS. Bottom line—the franchise method works and it’s attracting new investors and capital. Smart management teams will look deeply into how the acquisition will, directly and indirectly, impact franchisees if they want to create the most value.
