The world's leading brands trust Marq


The brand templating platform for franchisors & franchisees alike

Franchise development requires a level of consistency and oversight that is unmatched in the world of business. Franchisors and franchisees must develop a system for keeping their brand image and messaging consistent to customers regardless of their location, which is no easy feat.

As a franchisor, you've probably established brand guidelines you expect to be kept across all locations, but franchise owners have their own local issues, marketing strategies, and campaigns that preoccupy their time.

That's where Marq comes in. Marq empowers you to keep your franchise marketing consistent across the board, all without slowing down your franchisees or taking away their localized preferences. That way, you can (finally) focus on growing your brand instead of maintaining it.

What's in it for you?

More time

Franchisees can customize and distribute pre-approved templates on their own, freeing up precious design resources while still ensuring brand consistency.

More consistency

Never see another stretched logo or off-brand color again. Franchisees will only be able to customize the design elements you determine.


Go the extra 1% consistently and give your customers the tailored-to-fit content they expect from brands like yours.

Lock down your brand

From print advertising to digital marketing, your ability to lock down brand assets will keep your franchise's image consistent no matter where it goes or what collateral it's on.

Say goodbye to stretched logos and off-hue colors forever by locking down logos, fonts, images, colors, and more. Our template solution allows franchisees to create professional yet localized designs without disrupting the brand.

Save precious design time

While other template solutions exist, they can be inflexible and slow. The Marq drag-and-drop editor makes it easy for any franchisee to own their local marketing and pump out print and digital collateral on their own time.

Meanwhile, your corporate design team will be able to focus their efforts on bigger branding initiatives rather than menial tasks such as updating images and tweaking text.

Happy franchisees = happy you

Franchise owners want their business to be successful as much as you do. By providing them with the proper franchise marketing platform, they'll spend less time in back-and-forths with the corporate office, and more time building a successful business.

Our intuitive interface and drag-and-drop editor make customization simple and straight-forward for anyone to use. Make customizing content even easier by storing all your brand assets in one place. Store assets in our asset manager or sync your brand's existing files directly to Marq using an integration with your current DAM.

Personalized visibility

Multi-channel distribution options empower you to seamlessly share finished materials with your customers, ensuring brand visibility no matter where your customers are at. Once you’ve completed a project, simply choose from any of our multi-channel distribution options — print & ship, social, email, or export — and hit send.

Import data to autofill documents

Want to make it even easier to create new documents? Use data automation to populate content with names, addresses, or other relevant data by connecting with your existing data sources, empowering you to create more content, more quickly.


“Marq’s lock variation gives me the ability to protect my brand while still giving our franchisees the freedom to be creative. It’s been a real win-win.”

How it works


Your templates, your way

Create easy-to-find libraries of pre-approved, on-brand templates and branded assets. Have existing InDesign templates? They can easily be imported into the Marq editor and then quickly distributed, customized and protected — all in one place.


Lock down your brand

Your brand's important assets can all be stored in the Marq editor for easy access. Lock down logos, colors, fonts and more in your templates to ensure the brand stays protected after it reaches the hands of franchisees. You'll never see off-brand collateral again.

Localize the look

Reduce strain on your creative team by empowering non-designers to personalize and distribute content across digital or printed channels of their own. Toggle our Approval Process feature on and off for added control.
