Welcome to Edwards Global Services


Edwards Global Services, Inc. (EGS) was founded in 2001 to help U.S. franchise companies take their business into other countries profitably through licensing.

EGS is known worldwide for focusing U.S. Clients on entering the countries that have the highest potential ROI for their specific brand.  EGS uses a proven, trademarked, stepped process that assesses the global potential for each franchise, develops a business plan to go global, and then implements the plan using their experienced U.S.-based executive team and in-country associate network in 32 countries. Edwards Global Services (EGS) offers a unique combination of experience, processes, network, tools and brand representation that makes taking a U.S. franchise global easier and more successful, start to finish.

"In 2011 and again in 2015, EGS received the U.S. Presidential ‘E’ Award For Export Services because of continued, documented success for the U.S.-based franchises our company represents,” said William Edwards, Founder and CEO of EGS and corporate Member of MAPLE. The President’s “E” Award is the highest recognition any U.S. company can receive for making a significant contribution to the expansion of U.S. exports. To be considered for this national award, EGS was required to document in detail the process and success taking 20 U.S. companies into other countries.

Going global creates jobs in the U.S.

It is estimated that U.S.-based franchises account for net fee and royalty payments back to the U.S. from foreign operations of more than US$1 billion annually. And the export of U.S. franchise systems creates training and support jobs at home.

Some of the U.S. Brands helped by EGS

Among the many U.S. companies that EGS has helped Go Global are: Abrakadoodle®, Build-A-Bear Workshop®, Carl’s Jr®, Denny’s®, The Melting Pot®, Round Table Pizza, Right At Home® senior care, Sky Zone®, and Two Men and A Truck®.

The company’s tagline is “many U.S. franchises try to take their business global. The franchises EGS take global actually succeed and make money’.
