Every Miracle-Ear Territory is Exclusive
We believe that our franchisees should be working together, supporting and helping one another, rather than competing for customers. That’s why each Miracle-Ear® franchisee has an exclusive and precisely defined geographical territory to ensure sufficient market penetration.
Once you own an exclusive territory, no other Miracle-Ear franchisee may open a location within your territory or may market into your territory.
Miracle-Ear offers ZIP code level exclusivity and the ability to grow your business into new locations to achieve full market penetration. We’ll provide information and guidance to help you decide on a location for your business. With our sophisticated mapping system we will show your target population, current customer flow, competition, key shopping areas and other useful business considerations.
