Coming to America: Five International Franchises That Found Success in the U.S.

01 Jun 2021 - From coffee and donuts to taxes and hoses, these international franchises have made a name for themselves in the U.S. and are poised for greater expansion in 2021.

Franchising can be a great way to expand a business on a global scale. The franchising structure can streamline the process for businesses to move into foreign markets more efficiently, and franchising can be a more cost-effective expansion model, too.

These five concepts are not only established in their home countries, but also in the United States, and they reign as the globetrotting leaders in the wide world of franchising.
