The conditions for starting a franchise in Denmark

Franchising is common in a wide range of industries in Denmark. It is common in the retail and the tourism and accommodation industry but also for personal services and cafes and restaurants. Examples of franchising opportunities in Denmark include:

– hotels;

– wellness;

– education centers;

– retail;

– fashion;

– restaurants, cafes and food franchises in general.

When a franchisee buys into a franchise business model he acquires not only the model per se but also the know-how, the trademarks and may receive specialized training for staff and for managing the business. This is generally considered more advantageous for the Danish business owners than opening a new company. The franchisor, the one who sells the business model, will thus have the change to expand to Copenhagen or another location in Denmark.
