Your franchise or multilocation business deserves a beautiful website that works for your organization.

Tired of explaining your organizational structure to agencies – explaining the importance of local customizations and the role of your local business owners – only to get back a strategy that doesn’t take the needs of your franchisees and local business owners into consideration? Our experience working with multi-location businesses (from the inside and as a digital agency) means you don’t have to explain it again. We’ll work with you to build a website that works – giving you control over your brand and allowing your local business owners to customize content.

Franchise Web Design & Development?

What’s Important

The cost of franchise SEO services can vary widely depending on the specific needs of the franchise and the level of service you are looking for. We do not have set pricing for our franchise SEO clients. It’s important that we understand your business goals, your website structure, and the results you’re trying to achieve.

We’ll start with a technical audit. This is an important step in understanding your current position and the opportunities available. Based on this report, we’ll recommend a monthly retainer to continually optimize your website.

Some factors that can influence the cost of our franchise SEO services include:


When your website developers really know SEO, you always win. After launching a new website with a new domain, we saw very little impact on our organic traffic after launch and a year later, our organic traffic is up 44% (January 2023 compared to January 2022). Trebletree’s strategic approach and intimate understanding of multi-location businesses have helped us stay ahead of the competition on a local and national level.

Franchise Websites Help Attract New Franchisees to Your Organization

A well-designed franchise website can play a crucial role in attracting new franchisees by creating a positive first impression and effectively conveying the benefits and opportunities of joining your franchise. Here are some ways to make your franchise website design more appealing to potential franchisees:

Brand Credibility and Recognition:

A well-designed and professional consumer-facing website can enhance the credibility and recognition of the franchise’s brand. When potential franchisees see that the brand has a strong online presence, positive customer reviews, and a polished website, they are more likely to view it as an attractive franchise opportunity. Make your website something franchisees could not build on their own.

Showcasing Customer Demand and Success:

The consumer-facing website can demonstrate the demand for the franchise’s products or services by showcasing customer testimonials, reviews, and success stories. When potential franchisees see that the brand has a loyal customer base and a track record of success, they are more likely to be interested in becoming a part of it.

Highlighting the Franchise’s Unique Selling Points:

The consumer-facing website can effectively highlight the franchise’s unique selling points and differentiators. It can showcase the franchise’s key features, benefits, and competitive advantages that set it apart from other businesses in the industry. This can attract potential franchisees who are looking for a distinctive and promising opportunity.

Whether you’re hoping to show your current franchisees the value of your organization, attract new franchisees, or BOTH, investing in your website is critical to success.
