What is an Area Development Agreement and an Area Representation Agreement?
An Area Development Agreement is a franchise relationship that grants a franchisee the right and obligation to open more than one location. Usually there are discounted franchise fees associated with an area development agreement. Area Developers (also referred to as Multi-Unit Franchisees) own and develop their units or territories.
An Area Representation Franchise Agreement takes an Area Development Agreement a step further – in addition to having the rights to multiple locations, an Area Representative can recruit franchisees to others in their territory, may offer certain services and participate in the fees from the unit franchises. However, the contractual agreement remains between the Franchisor and the Unit Franchise. These types of agreements can be very lucrative and serve as a mechanism for a franchisee to grow a very large enterprise.
