One avenue you may wish to explore, as an established business, is franchising your business model.

Franchising is when a party (the franchisor) grants another party (the franchisee) the right to use its trademark, trade-name as well as certain business systems and processes, to produce and market a service according to certain specifications.

If you have a successful business model and wish to grow your brand, yet have reservations about doing so due to limitations of capital, time and man power franchising maybe your solution. 

Franchising is based around people buying in to a proven, already established and creditable business model.  The franchisor will have operated for a number of years thus proving the business works and is worth investing by others. 

The franchisee pays a one-time fee (for a fixed term) plus a percentage of sale revenue as royalty. In order to protect your ‘brand’ it is essential you provide the franchisee with manuals on how to conduct business in your name as well as provide template documents for good practice and consistency throughout your brand.
