Pillars of Franchising is a show about being successful in franchising, but what are the franchising pillars ? Originally we had defined 6 pillars but then a disaster happened. The graphics designer created an awesome logo but it only had 5  pillars. So we adapted and made the change to 5 pillars and a goal.

  The 5 Pillars of Franchising are:
