Long Island franchise operations that started here

There are at least 41 Long Island-based companies registered to offer and sell franchises or that currently have franchises, according to the New York attorney general’s Investor Protection Bureau, which is responsible for registering them. Companies must register if they are offering or selling franchises in New York, a deal originates in the state, or if the prospective franchisee is a resident and opening a location in the state. Companies no longer offering or selling in New York don’t have to continue to register, but they can still operate in the state. Details are in the table below.
