Walmart does not offer franchise opportunities. The main corporation owns and operates all of the stores.
Franchise organisations permit entrepreneurs and investors to construct a store utilising their brand and procedures. It affords the option to acquire equity in a brand and acquire a stake in a business that may already have market momentum. Typically, this is more tempting to entrepreneurs because opening a franchise needs less effort than starting their own business. Starting a new business would need significant investment, and the profit may not be realised for quite some time.
