The first thing to do in looking for a hotel to franchise is to search for possible choices and try to avail of their services.

Before the negotiation process itself, you can seek valuable health from advisers and/or consultants whose field of specialization is hotel management. Advisers and/or consultants can help you to distinguish what ought to do before, during, and after the negotiation process.
In the negotiation process, you have to make sure that the deal is beneficial to both parties. A would-be franchisee has to mention everything that arouses the interest and eventually, convinces the franchisor to give what the would-be franchisee wants – his or her franchise. If there are any problems or concerns opened up the negotiation, then these should be fixed between both parties.
If the franchisor agrees, then it is time to acquire and dress up your franchise. If you are given an old hotel building for a franchise, then make sure you fix it first before using it as a business. You may dress up and develop your franchise in such a way that it arouses interest on the people. If the franchisor disagrees, lessons should be learned and the franchise hunting cycle shall start again.
