Discusses opportunities for U.S. franchisers and legal requirements in the market.

Although Belizeans are generally familiar with popular U.S. brands, franchising remains rare.  Franchising extends to a few well-known brand names, including Radisson, Best Western, and Ramada in the hospitality industry, Coca-Cola in the drink industry, Mail Boxes Etc. in the postal service, DHL and FedEx in express delivery services, and Avis, Budget, and Hertz in the auto rental business. Century 21, Re/Max, and Sotheby International Realty are also well-known real estate franchises operating in Belize.
