Abstract

Eveline Charles, the founder and chief executive officer (CEO) of EvelineCharles (a chain of upscale salon and spas focused in western Canada) was planning the next growth phase of her company. It was currently well positioned for growth: it had nine locations, a 26,000-square foot training facility, a warehouse and its own line of over 1,800 different spa and salon products. Despite these advantages, EvelineCharles was a small company and the CEO needed to be selective in her chosen growth strategy. She was trying to determine whether franchising her stores made more sense than relying on either organic growth or product distribution.
