One of the key selling points of SOS Franchising is its independence from private equity ownership. Unlike many other franchising models, SOS is not beholden to a higher power pulling the strings from behind the scenes. This means that our CEOs have the freedom to make decisions that are best for their individual centers and the communities they serve, without having to navigate the often-complex web of corporate bureaucracy. This independence translates into tangible benefits for our franchisees. With SOS, franchisees enjoy a level of flexibility that is often unheard of in larger franchising brands.
