As we head into the fall season, the summer has been filled with new and emerging concepts looking to grow via franchising.

From New York-style bagels looking to make it in new regions outside the Big Apple, to multiple chicken concepts including one helmed by Shaquille O’Neal, take a look at who’s franchising now.
