Grow your franchise with the design tool for teams

Whether you’re a franchise brand manager or individual owner, Canva can help grow your brand with professional visual graphics and eye-catching social media posts. With brand controls, templates, and premium content, it’s easy to create visual content for your franchise that’s on-brand and approved in an instant.

When franchise brand management teams centralise their branding, marketing, advertising, and social media campaigns, they can ensure brand consistency, no matter how many locations they’re working with.

The creative tools you need to scale your franchises faster

  • Premium Templates: Explore hundreds of thousands of professionally designed templates for menus, flyers, social media, and more.
  • Premium Stock Photography and Video: Canva’s premium content library has over 100 million commercially free photos, videos, graphics, elements, and audio files to support any type of franchise business.
  • Team Dashboards: Easily manage teams, brands, and campaigns right from Canva, with assigned roles and permissions for franchisees.

Maintain brand consistency and streamline approval workflows

When it comes to scaling franchise brands, it’s all in the details. With Canva, features like Brand Kits and locked elements take the risk out of quality control and guarantee that every design makes it out the door on brand. Manage your franchise’s brand guidelines, and share folders containing brand assets with franchise owners, press and media contacts, or customers.

Launch campaigns faster by integrating with your social media platforms

Creating engaging social media content has never been easier. Customise a Canva template or design from scratch, then schedule or publish campaigns right from the platform. You can even use tools like instant Background Remover, Magic Resize, and the built-in Canva Photo Editor to perfect and ship designs all at once.
