We expect franchisees to start with one specialized Carbon Recall unit but grow over time as they gain market share. A Territory Agreement provides franchisees with a protected region within a pre-determined trade area in one of Carbon Recall's target markets. Our development team has researched its growth markets to determine the appropriate number of locations suitable for a territory based on demographics, psychographics, and local population. An Area Developer/Master Franchise Owner is on a path to acquire large protected territories by expanding their business, and income potential, to more than one location.
