Why Play the Franchise Card?

Speed of Growth

There is no way to grow a business faster than through franchising. Raising capital to open location 3 and 4 takes time and enormous effort, as does build-out, staffing and ongoing management.  Franchising can place dozens of new owners quickly while utilizing the franchisee’s capital, skills and time.


McDonald’s, 7-11, Dunkin Donuts… Yes you know them all.  How did they do it? They created a system where the proof of burden was placed on thousands of highly qualified business owners. Building a franchise is a sophisticated means for creating extreme wealth.

create a movement

Cannabis Franchisors will be the leaders in this new industry.  Franchisees bond together to form a tribe around the business creating an impenetrable brand with exponential growth.

the 10x franchise advantage

return on investment

Franchisees have a much lower investment than a business that must build from the ground the operations, branding and legal support of the existing franchise.  Because of this lower investment ROI will be significantly higher.

Unit Performance

Units are generally better run, as is reflected in the fact that franchised stores generally outperform company-owned stores in terms of sales volume.

loan structure

Franchisors can grow the organization without adding significantly to overhead and leverage the assets of the entire franchise system for valuation for capital or a viable exit strategy.


International expansion is facilitated easily with global partners and a much more rapid pace as risk is assumed in the country of origin.

limited contingent liability

The franchisor will not be signing leases, taking on financing, etc., and will thus expand with limited contingent liability.

Reduced Vicarious Liability

The liability for acts of employees (e.g., sexual harassment, EEOC violations, etc.) and for occurrences in the unit (e.g., slip-and-fall) accrues to the franchisee, not the franchisor, for the most part.

Motivated management

Franchising provides the business with an elevated level of motivation as management of the stores are no longer employees but owners of an investment.

quality control

Franchisees generally keep their units in better operational shape than unit managers and, as a part of the community, are better able to promote these units locally.


Since franchisees use their own capital, the franchisor has virtually no investment at the unit level. Franchising allows companies to leverage off the assets of franchisees


Franchisees will often contribute to a common advertising and promotional fund. This fund will be used to promote the brand under the direction of the franchisor.

Selling Your Franchises

Conceive, Design, & Build your franchise with cannabis10x

Cannabis 10X Creates the Sales Architecture from which the effective sales flow is based. Sales flow is essential for growth. Cannabis10X actively directs sales flow from portals, advertising channels, brokers, networks, and development website into the sales funnel.  Real-time changes are made based upon ongoing results with both active and passive feedback. Establishing solid sales involves much more than generating leads. Managing brokers, creating effective discovery days, and ensuring the systems infrastructure for effective validation are essential.

Reliable System

As franchisees are added to the business, revenue grows through royalties, profit centers, and intrinsic branding. As attrition occurs, ownership is transferred rather than terminated, assuring a consistent revenue stream.

exponential growth

Strong franchise systems add franchisees at a rapid pace, doing what others take years of painstaking work to achieve in just a short few. These systems have the wealth of multiple locations to simultaneously grow. Due to the sheer numbers, mistakes are made at a more rapid pace, and thus new franchisees relish in a powerful, tested system.

extraordinary results

Creating a franchise system is extraordinary business. Internal competition with franchisees push previous limitations. Corporate culture creates a sense of loyalty and team, through mentorship, and mentorship programs.
