Franchising & Distribution

Franchising provides unique opportunities to business owners and entrepreneurs, offering the chance to purchase a known brand entity and established business model which can provide a relatively low-risk business opportunity. Franchises exist in any number of industries, including restaurants, hotels and hospitality, retail centers and large corporations.

Even though Puerto Rico is a territory of the United States, its laws differ significantly from those of the States. Therefore, any company that seeks to do business in Puerto Rico needs to understand the laws that apply to franchising and distribution.
