Franchise Comparison

Franchise Territory

A major benefit of owning a Klappenberger & Son franchise is that we offer you your choice from a wide array of expansive, available territories. Our territories are not only much larger than those of all other competitors, but for now the wealthiest territories are still available in your area. A fantastic advantage of getting a franchise early is that you can stake your claim where you want.

Why do we offer such large territories? Because I’d rather have 200 successful and satisfied franchises than 400 franchises complaining that their territories are too small and that they are competing with each other for business.
