A Master Franchisee or Area Developer (AD) is an entrepreneur who purchases the exclusive rights to develop a large regional territory. The Area Developer recruits new franchisees (single unit builders) and helps them open their individual locations in this exclusive territory, following an agreed upon schedule. The Area Developer is trained by the Franchisor (Green Home Builders Management Team) in how to perform the various services to be provided to these franchisees.
This is due to the superior “return on investment” potential that territory development offers. The AD in the GH Builder model receives revenue from multiple revenue streams which include:
High percentage of the initial franchise fees paid by single unit franchisees.
Majority of the ongoing royalty fees paid by single unit franchisees in the AD’s region over the 10-20 year life of such businesses.

Features of Area Developer Based Territory Development
Area Developers (ADs) own a large (often very large) exclusive geographic territory.
AD’s can personally open additional locations in their regions at a reduced cost – to keep or sell later as an existing business for, a substantially higher price.
ADs receive an ongoing “long term/residual” royalty income stream for the life of each of the franchised business locations within their territory, as long as they remain active ADs.
After the initial startup phase, AD’s may choose to hire a general manager and step out of day-to-day involvement in the business.
AD is an established business development and operations vehicle. Some of the largest and most successful franchise systems in the world have grown using regional development strategies (Century 21, McDonalds, Subway, Massage Envy, etc.).
