Franchise internationalization

Franchise Internacionalisation


The natural step for any company or franchise whose growth in its country of origin is consolidated, is to make the leap abroad.

At Barbadillo y Asociados we take your franchise to the market you want or import a model that operates abroad.

Our extensive network of offices in strategic countries allows us to offer our clients the chance to undertake the internationalisation of franchising or import brands that do not exist in our country. What do our international services consist of?

Import of franchises

If you are an investor and you are interested in importing a franchise, at Barbadillo y Asociados we can advise you on the business concepts that are having success in other countries and we will help you manage the acquisition of the master franchise rights.

The import of master franchises calls for a meticulous study of the business concept and the possible adaptations to the culture of the country in which it is to be implanted. An in-depth study of the franchise contract and its setting in motion is also necessary. Our international  presence and experience are placed at your service to achieve success.

Export of franchises

If you have a consolidated business and wish to export it to new markets through master franchise agreements or joint ventures, at Barbadillo y Asociados we help you with the management and search for franchisees in the destination country.

Our network of contacts and international offices have all the experience and knowledge of the market needed to set up your insignia in other countries through the search for individual, regional or national franchisees.


Drafting and reviewing of master contracts

Both import and export of franchises requires in-depth knowledge of the sector and the characteristics of master franchise contracts. At Barbadillo y Asociados we have this experience in Spain and in all of the countries where we operate through our own offices or associated consultants.

IFCN, a select network of international consultants at your service

Barbadillo y Asociados is a founding member of the International Franchise Consultant Network (IFCN), the network of international franchise consultants whose ethical standards, which are compulsory for all of its members, make it a mandatory reference for European franchises wishing to export their business models. If you need support in any of the countries where the network operates or would like a global offer for expanding your franchise on several markets in parallel, the IFCN is the best solution within your grasp.
