FRANCHISORS & MULTI-UNIT FRANCHISEES TEAM UP FOR GROWTH Multi-unit franchisees dominate today’s marketplace, controlling more total units than their single-unit counterparts—and an increasing number are operating multiple brands. This steady shift over the past decade led Franchise Update Media in 2004 to debut a new magazine—Multi-Unit Franchisee— to serve the growing generation of multiunit operators, hungry for information to help them expand both their number of units and their number of brands. The first issue of the new magazine featured multi-brand franchisee John Prince, a former stockbroker whose franchise holdings then included Applebee’s, Aaron’s, Famous Dave’s, and a Hooters (in Salt Lake City, no less!). We also featured Jim Gendreau, who in 1981 sold 70 franchises in 9 months for Cost Cutters, and then became a serial franchisee for several brands, including operating 54 Cost Cutters of his own. We also told the story of Tom Larson, who had 20 lodging and restaurant units spread among 7 brands. We led the story with this: “Besides size, what makes these area developers different from other franchise owners? Why do they amass so many units and brands while others are content with one site, maybe two or three? How do they manage to manage more brands than other people can handle units? Who are these guys?”

Since then we’ve interviewed and profiled hundreds of “these guys” (and women); heard from experts on every facet of the business; and compiled lists and rankings that chronicle the fantastic growth in not only the numbers, but also in the professionalism of these operators and their organizations. Our annual Multi-Unit Franchising Conference also has grown over the years, in both the number and the quality of attendees, panelists, speakers, and exhibitors. Our online multi-unit business intelligence offerings have also expanded greatly with monthly newsletters and websites focused on multi-unit franchising—paralleling the growth and serving the growing needs of the expanding ranks of multi-unit and multi-brand franchisee organizations. Franchisors, in tandem with the growing base of multi-unit operators, have recognized this change and responded by altering their sales approach, even their FDDs, to accommodate multipleunit sales to experienced franchisees. The “three-pack” has grown to the five-pack and 10-pack, and we’re hearing more about deals to develop upwards of 50 or 100 units in territories that grow larger each year.

on their success and offer their stories and insights to our readers. And up close and personal at our annual Multi-Unit Conference, they have shown a generosity of spirit through impromptu conversations and on-the- spot mentoring. This edition of the Multi-Unit Buyer’s Guide to Franchise Opportunities is a resource for connecting expansionminded multi-unit operators with like-minded franchisors. The following pages, filled with concrete information from franchisors, is intended to help you evaluate new opportunities to diversify your portfolio of franchise brands. The franchisors listed in these pages understand multi-unit franchising and are actively seeking experienced operators to help them penetrate new markets, quickly and effectively—and you’re looking for the best brands to help your franchisee organization grow. We hope this guide helps all involved. New and prosperous partnerships could be just a few pages away!

Many of these multi-unit operators are only too pleased to share what they know with each other through our in-depth magazine profiles, taking time out from their busy schedules to reflect

MUOS ON THE RISE

THE PACE OF CHANGE HAS BEEN CONSISTENT AND RATHER PREDICTABLE Multi-unit franchise operators are about to exceed the 55-mph speed limit: we can now officially say that they control 55% of all franchised units in the U.S. The 80/20 rule also applies: those 55% of all franchised units in the U.S. are controlled by 20% of all franchise unit operators. Both are records. The steady expansion of multi-unit dominance started in the late 1980s, so it is relatively recent in the context of the franchise business model. As recently as eight years ago, a majority of units were controlled by single-unit operators. The pace of change has been consistent and rather predictable, with a current rate of change of about 1% each year. There are two big drivers of this change. The first is that we raised a generation of franchisees with growth on their minds. They pushed through the older “buy a job” mentality with business plans aimed at multi-unit expansion from the time they started in business. The second driver is cooperative franchisors, who went from being concerned by too much franchisee power to actively designing development programs around multiunit models. Some of today’s largest franchisees are NPC International (1,158 units, mostly Pizza Hut); Target Corp. (1,147 units, mostly Pizza Hut Express); Heartland Automotive Service (529 units, mostly Jiffy Lube); and Harman Management Corp. (466 units, mostly QSR brands). As with these four franchisees, industries with the highest concentrations of multiunit franchisees are in food. As the table shows, more than 82% of franchised QSR businesses are controlled by multi-unit franchisees, followed by restaurants (sitdown) at 77% and baked goods at 72%. Also of note is the rise of some non-food industry classifications, such as businessrelated, automotive, real estate, clothing retail, and education-related.

4

On the other end of the spectrum, less than 5% of franchised travel businesses are controlled by multi-unit franchisees, followed by computer products and services (5.7%) and photographic products and services (8.5%). Perhaps the most important point is that multiunit franchising has penetrated all industries where the franchise business model is found.

TOP 10 INDUSTRIES BY MUF CONTROL

There are some interesting geographic distinctions as well, creating a sort of North-South divide. Only four states have a majority of units in the hands of single-unit franchisees: Maryland (51%), Vermont (52%), New Jersey (56%), and Montana (57%). West Virginia, at 64%, has the highest concentration of units controlled by multi-unit franchisees. All other states with high concentrations of units in the hands of multi-unit franchisees are in the South, including: Arkansas, Mississippi, Kentucky, and Alabama, each with 62%. Additional Findings Here are some more statistics that shed light on the profile of multi-unit operators. Based on a large sampling of franchised businesses for which gender information was available, 28% were women-owned, and almost 40% of these were controlled by multi-unit franchisees. Of the more than 40,000 multi-unit franchisees, 7% (about 2,700) operate units across several brands. While that doesn’t seem like a high percentage, it is growing quickly. Of the roughly 450,000 total business format franchised units in the U.S., about 360,000 are represented in the sample. Compared with similar sample from a few years ago, it shows that not only do we have a growing concentration of units controlled by multi-unit operators, we have a growing concentration of units controlled by larger multi-unit operators.

Across all units, the average multi-unit franchisee owns 5 franchised locations, up from about 3.5 in 2007. This obvious skewing is the result of larger franchisees adding units at a faster relative pace than single-unit and smaller multi-unit operators. Although the economy has been bad for most companies, it has greatly assisted this trend toward concentration. In the 2008–2010 period, many single-unit operators either sold to larger operators or closed because of sales and financing pressures. While the sales levels have improved somewhat, in the past two years lenders have concentrated their lending at the lower end of the business risk spectrum, which, of course, is represented by none other than multi-unit operators. Despite the economic obstacles, it’s a good time to be a multi-unit operator. Darrell Johnson is CEO of FRANdata, an independent research company supplying information and analysis for the franchising sector since 1989. He can be reached at 703-740-4700 or djohnson@frandata.com.


Several obvious trends are affecting these outcomes. Multi-unit development models became a common form for expansion only in the past 20 years. In a life cycle sense, the data confirm that this model is still solidly in a growth mode. And although many franchisors have had to cancel contracts for development, especially for the second and third units within the contract timelines, these data suggest that many second, third, and fourth units have been added in recent years.

WHAT’S DRIVING MULTI-UNIT GROWTH Stats point to continuing multi-unit expansion

For the past few years you have heard me note that the majority of franchised units in the U.S. are owned by multi-unit operators. With more than 400,000 franchised units in the country, multiunit operators control about 53 percent of those units. That’s impressive, and the percentage controlled by multi-unit operators is rising. This growth is a consequence of many brands focusing their development models on multi-unit development packages over single-unit programs. Today, FRANdata’s database shows the following breakdown of multi-unit operators (MUOs): These are the “known” franchisees in our database. While we try to keep up with the changes in each franchise system, our database does not include current data for all of today’s 3,500-plus brands. Therefore, each category understates the actual total. Since our database is more current with the larger brands and most of the smaller to medium-sized brands, any under-counting is primarily with the less-established brands, which are less likely to have many multi-unit operators. Statistically, we think we have more than 90 percent in each category. Using this 90 percent confidence level leads us to good representative estimated counts. Thus, in total, we believe there are more than 40,000 multi-unit operators in

the U.S. With the number of units they control and the brands and sectors they operate in, that puts the combined annual revenue of multi-unit operators at more than $100 billion. There’s some serious operational, business, and political influence in that figure. We know the number of units they control is growing. But how is the number of multi-unit operators changing? For that, we can turn to our actual database counts. Assuming the actual-toestimated changes are consistent, the actual counts should reflect about the same percentage change per category that our estimated numbers would show. In a three-year span, we’ve seen a 17 percent increase in entry-level multi-unit operators. That’s certainly consistent with our analysis of the development models franchise brands have been using over the past few years. To wit, entry-level multi-unit operators’ average annual growth of nearly 6 percent slightly exceeds the growth of franchised units generally, which has been expanding by about 5 percent per year.

We also can’t ignore the impact that one of the “big two” small-business challenges—capital access—may have had on the growth statistics of multiunit operators (the other, of course, is unit sales in a soft economy). Most banks have tightened their underwriting borrower qualification standards to include existing experience in the industry. This undoubtedly has led to more multi-unit operators compared with new single-unit operators. Finally, it should be noted that the growth of multi-unit operators is happening, in part, from the exiting of some singleunit operators. Transfers are on the rise across many industries. As I’ve noted previously, multi-unit operators increasingly are the buyers of existing units. It makes sense, since they are in the best position to evaluate the current operations and future potential of an existing unit. All of this suggests a continuing rise in influence of the multi-unit operator within franchising. Want further evidence? Franchise Update Media’s Multi-Unit Franchising Conference has set attendance records in the past several years. Looks like I’ll be seeing more of you in Las Vegas next year!

He can be reached at 703-740-4700 or djohnson@frandata.com.

Much more interesting is the expansion of the larger categories of multi-unit operators. In the three-year span, those categories expanded about 25 percent. Even more interesting is the consistency with which each category expanded, ranging between 24 and 28 percent.

MULTI-MANIA

MORE FRANCHISEES THAN EVER ARE ADDING NEW UNITS Franchisees are an optimistic lot, expansion-minded, on the grow, always alert to new opportunities. And for them, multiunit franchising represents one of today’s most attractive opportunities. Whether it involves increasing the number of units of their current brand or adding new brands to their holdings, the allure of multi-unit franchising is attracting the best and brightest franchisees in the business with increasing frequency. During the past 20 years, what began as a trickle has become one of the hottest vehicles for building a business rapidly and sustaining it through the years. FRANdata puts the number of multi-unit operators at more than 40,000, and they control more than 200,000 franchised units in the U.S. Successful multi-unit operators are a different breed than the single-unit franchisees they are displacing. Light years beyond the old “buying a job” mentality, they are skilled, professional business executives who have chosen franchising as their business model. They possess the skills, training, capital, infrastructure, and vision to keep adding units to their portfolio—without stressing their organization or their stomach. Even during the recent economic upheaval, savvy multi-unit franchisees continued to expand, especially in QSR and in services such as senior care, hair salons, massage, home maintenance, children’s activities, pet care, and more. After all, if you can make money with one unit you can make even more with two, three, or more, right? Well, yes—but it takes a certain skill set, dedication, and infrastructure to make it all work effectively and efficiently. If you’re a regular reader of Multi-Unit Franchisee magazine, especially our ongoing profiles of successful multi-unit franchisees, you know exactly what we mean. All the right pieces must be in all the right places for a multi-unit franchise organization to succeed. If they’re not, the results can be disastrous for both franchisee and franchisor. At its best, however, multi-

unit franchising allows franchisees (and franchisors) to increase their unit count, market penetration, and profitability more rapidly than a single-unit owner ever could. Multi-unit franchising already has altered the landscape of franchising in many ways, and will continue to do so. In recent years, private equity has “discovered” the profit potential of multi-unit franchising, buying into multi-unit franchise organizations or acquiring them outright—even doing the same with franchisors. And you know they appreciate the benefits and value of a diversified portfolio!

If you have the background, experience, and drive to take on these challenges, then multi-unit franchising offers you a path to achieve your dreams. According to franchise attorney Lane Fisher, “The emergence and growth of multi-unit franchisees is having a profound effect on franchising. It is rapidly changing prospective franchisee screening standards, the quality and substance of existing training and operational support, pressuring franchisors to make financial performance representations in their franchise disclosure documents, and affecting the way contracts are written by redefining ‘non-negotiable’ rights and deal breakers.” Fisher says that although multi-unit franchising is clearly a growing trend, particularly in food, it is not appropriate for all opportunities. “Sometimes it is a function of timing, as many new franchisors use various forms of multi-unit franchising to grow in early stages; or in other cases the unit economics simply will not support the additional layers of infrastructure to make the investment worthwhile; and in other cases multi-unit

expansion is at odds with corporate philosophy, or the lack of expansion capital in a particular industry.” In other words, while multi-unit franchising is the way to go for any franchisee seriously looking to grow their organization, it’s not a slam-dunk, it’s not for everyone, and it’s far from easy. In fact it’s hard work, and fraught with failure. Successful multi-unit franchisees must do at least three things well: You must be able to finance the additional locations/territories. That means deep pockets, or at least access to deep pockets. This often requires business partners and/or lenders who then have skin in the game and can influence the way you conduct your business. This is an important reality to keep in mind if you are an independent thinker and operator. You must be able to form an organization with a management team and infrastructure to command your expanding empire. You may be able to remain hands-on with a handful of units, but when you reach 10 or more it’s no longer feasible for you to oversee day-to-day operations. At some point, you will need to bring in a team to handle everything from operations to finance to marketing and HR. You must learn to delegate and get out of the way. Leadership is the final ingredient. You come to the game with vision, ambition, and inspiration. The challenge is communicating these crucial intangibles to your expanding organization and keeping them intact as they filter down to your unit managers and front-line staff through your in-house team. Necessary and achievable; never simple nor easy. If you have the background, experience, and drive to take on these challenges, then multi-unit franchising offers you a path to achieve your dreams. But you can’t do it alone. Rely on people, partners, and delegation—plus a large helping of your own passion, patience, dedication, and hard work—and yes, you can grow a multi-unit empire.


SPREADING THE RISK

Multi-brand franchising allows multi-unit operators to balance risk and ride out the uncertainties of the marketplace in many ways

ECONOMIC CYCLES. Operating brands in different industries can help minimize the ups and downs of an uncertain economy. Casual dining as a segment took a huge hit in the recession, while bargain-priced fast food continued to do fairly well; new car dealers suffered while automotive maintenance and repair businesses held their own and expanded.

SEASONAL CYCLES. A lawn care franchise in a four-season climate slows to a crawl in the winter. Ice cream, lemonade, and frozen desserts peak in the warm weather, so why not add soup and sandwiches as the weather cools? Adding a second business to balance out the seasons will keep employees engaged and the cash flowing in. New brands can be in related sectors (maid service, electrical, plumbing, home insulation), or in completely different areas (food, rental centers).

CASH FLOW. A franchisee with several units of a casual restaurant brand ventured into rental stores. Stocking a new rental store with merchandise is expensive, and monthly rental fees don’t cover the purchase price for 6, 12, or 18 months, tying up valuable cash in inventory. The daily cash flow from the restaurants was the perfect complement to keep the organization healthy until the rental stores started showing a profit—which they did handsomely in time.

DAY PARTS. Breakfast, lunch, dinner, late night, and in-between. Whether it’s food or services, consumers and businesses have needs 24 hours a day. If your business makes the majority of its sales at breakfast and lunch, adding a brand that peaks in the afternoon and evening will make for a longer day, but also a stronger bottom line.

SURPRISES. Fast food operators have been hit hard over the years by news of salmonella, E. coli, employee misbehavior, and other developments beyond their control. Having other brands in your portfolio can help you stay afloat until a negative situation is remedied and trustin the brand restored.

BRAND DIVERSITY The growing allure of operating several concepts

Franchising continues to grow—not only in size, but in complexity—and in recent years, a huge part of that growth is attributable to multi-brand franchising. Makes sense. If following the system works for one successful brand, it will most likely work in another, then another—if you choose wisely. And if your unit economics are strong, more profit will flow your way with each passing year and additional brand. Diversification, a recommended strategy in designing an investment portfolio, is a big part of the thinking behind the growth in multi-brand franchising. As savvy investors know, no matter how good your ROI may be from a single holding, it’s not wise to put all your eggs in one basket. And as multi-unit franchisees seek new avenues for growth, an increasing number are adding second, third, and fourth brands to their portfolios. “There is a definite interest in growth through multi-concept operations,” says Darrell Johnson, president of FRANdata. “It’s continuing to expand and grow, and we see the trend continuing upward.” Franchise attorney Lane Fisher observes: “From a franchisor’s perspective, multiunit franchising provides opportunities for accelerated growth; a vehicle to penetrate new markets; capitalize on certain market efficiencies; reduce the training, opening, and operational assistance typically provided to single-unit franchisees; and is a means to attract and reward productive franchisees.” One dynamic propelling multi-brand growth is the combination of 1) expansion-minded franchisors seeking multiunit operators successful with other brands with 2) successful multi-unit franchisees evaluating new concepts to diversify their organization. This alignment of interests has been accompanied by a rise in the number of franchisors offering several concepts from under one corporate umbrella—usually limited to a single industry segment (fast food or home repair services, for example). For franchisors offering multiple brands, it means working with franchisee

organizations they already know, saving countless hours of relationship-building, recruiting, investigation of finances, etc. For franchisees, adding a new brand from their current franchisor does the same. It means working with a known, trusted management team, saves time, helps them open units sooner, and also can mean discounts on franchise fees, sometimes even royalties for a limited time. Franchisors seeking new multi-unit partners are looking for a proven track record managing multiple units, relevant industry experience, positive cash flow, strong unit economics, and a solid management team and infrastructure. And, of course, signing multi-unit or area development deals also means dealing with fewer franchisees to sell more units. Franchisees seeking a new franchisor partner look for pretty much the same: a solid management team, strong unit economics, a well-known and respected brand name, and an opportunity to develop a territory over the long term.

real estate can help you acquire a second or third concept, without putting a stranglehold on your cash flow. INFRASTRUCTURE. Multi-unit franchisees with their own accounting, human resources, and other internal departments often have excess capacity. Adding brands can take advantage of that capacity, growing profits without expanding the home office staff. With a strong infrastructure in place, a multi-brand franchisee has a built-in advantage in building brand awareness in their territory and more easily, rapidly, and successfully penetrating their market with a new brand.

A successful track record with one franchise concept demonstrates your ability to lenders who can help you launch that next concept. Thriving multi-unit franchise operators typically have high net worth, extensive contacts, and access to financing to open successful units quickly. These are powerful assets to have. Your existing operation and the value of your

CO-BRANDING. Locating two or more brands in a single location also allows behind-the-scenes efficiencies that can boost profits. Be careful to maintain compliance with each franchise agreement, as some concepts may not be combined legally or functionally. If it does work, co-branding and co-marketing can make more efficient use of your advertising dollar. Each franchise brand has its own proprietary operating system perfected over many years and many thousands of customer transactions. While the operating systems differ and must remain separate, sometimes elements of one can be applied to another, or to internal operations at the franchisee’s home office. The same holds true for marketing programs, recruiting methods, training, HR, and every other ingredient of franchising success. Keep them separate to maintain compliance, but look for areas to adapt good ideas across your organization.

GEOGRAPHY.

FINANCING.

Once an organization attains a certain size, several things get easier and, often, less expensive since you’re “buying in bulk”: marketing and advertising, supplier costs and services, administrative and back-office functions, and more. For example, one vendor may be able to service all your equipment and, as a result, offer you a more economical rate.

SYNERGY.

Taken alone or together, there are many reasons that inspire successful multi-unit franchisees to seek out additional brands: Adding a new brand can be the perfect path to continued growth in their region for a single-brand multi-unit operator or area developer who has built out their territory, or for a franchisee of a brand with no local opportunities to build more units—without having to travel to new or distant locales. Familiarity with the territory and the dynamics of their market, combined with local connections and a solid grasp of local real estate, developers, and zoning requirements is a real home-court advantage.

ECONOMIES OF SCALE.

TRAINING AND RETENTION. With two or more brands, a franchisee can offer employees cross-training, flexibility, promotions, and a clear growth path as their skill sets improve. This helps in attracting and retaining top talent as you build your organization, always a challenge in any business. And with better-trained employees, unit economics improve.

Multi-Unit Buyer’s Guide

Multi-brand franchising is a complex business. Done right, it offers great potential to the multi-unit franchisee seeking to diversify their investment, increase their profitability, and build a larger, stronger organization. One caveat: New brands should not (and in many franchise agreements, cannot) be in competition with your existing brands. Check with your franchisor, franchise agreement, and franchise attorney before you start shopping for a new brand.

MEGA 99 RANKINGS Each year we work with FRANdata to compile a list of the country’s largest multi-unit franchisee organizations. Based on total unit count, the rankings show not only the number of units these “mega” franchisees operate, but also their brands. While the list is dominated by food brands, it also includes non-food concepts such as

business services (tax preparation), consumer services (automotive), and lodging. Building a multi-unit empire is a matter of taste, opportunity, passion, and comfort level. If you’re looking to expand and diversify your own franchise empire, study what the “big guys” are buying—it just might help you with your own growth choices in 2018.

2017 DOMINATORS Multi-unit, multi-brand operators continue expanding each year—a trend that continues to accelerate as these “Dominators” grow their portfolios through acquisitions, building new units, refranchising, and scooping up successful units from retiring franchisees. Banking on their good credit, solid infrastructure, and track record, today’s Dominators are creating historically large franchisee organizations, as the rankings from FRANdata demonstrate. And they keep on getting bigger every year. Today’s Dominators are sophisticated, savvy, and experienced at managing organizations with hundreds of units,

often spread across several states. They also understand that success is all about unit economics: one customer and one sale at a time. They create jobs by the hundreds and thousands, hiring young employees and providing a career path for them to grow, and they do business with local suppliers—lots of them. And they give back to their communities on a large scale, encouraging their employees to support local organizations and charities. No franchisee gets to the top without years of hard work, sacrifice, perseverance, and an unwavering desire to be the best. Congratulations to this year’s Dominators!

We embrace the idea of variety with a passion.” OPPORTUNITY DESCRIPTION At Überrito, we go above and beyond the basic burrito to fill those voids— to satisfy those existential cravings with creations that are thoughtfully prepared for yü by yü. Überrito defies the predictable preconceptions of Fresh-Mex. Or anything- Mex for that matter. Our only standing rule is that food, even when served fast, should be fundamentally good. Über-good. An experience to remember—and repeat. We help you succeed by providing support in operations, training, site selection, construction and advertising.
