Buying An Online Business Franchise

Online business franchises are a type of the more general category business franchises. You can find information here to locate and purchase an online franchise. 

Some of the most notable business franchises are McDonalds and Subway, although these are of course not the online type of business franchises. A franchise business has a business model that is the same for each business that is franchised. The offering of franchises is a way that a company can expand in size and territory. When you buy a franchise you will sign a franchise agreement that spells out the responsibilities of both you and the franchisor.  You will be obligated to operate the business according to the rules of the franchisor.

Online franchises appear in the same websites as other types of businesses for sale. My favorite business and franchise search sites are:

The following web sites have sales information specifically about franchise businesses, including online franchises:,, and You can also check with local brokers, in newspapers and with other business advertisers.  Also, search online for “franchises”, “franchise for sale”, etc.  If you are interested in a specific type of franchise, then search precisely for that.

Also, consider that you can buy a new franchise and set it up from scratch (the usual offering of a franchisor), or you can buy an existing franchise business that is already operating. The purchase of an existing franchise business will probably require the approval of the franchisor.
