The franchising sector continues to expand throughout New Zealand. U.S.-based companies have found a great deal of success in franchising.  Approximately 85 percent of New Zealand’s businesses are very small (fewer than 50 employees).  As such, franchising has become an important business model, especially in the last decade.  Most of the initial growth has been concentrated in retail, but has recently included the service sector.
