NETTL IS EXCLUSIVE
You could be the only Nettl in the neighborhood.
If you decide to become a Nettl Franchise, we’ll grant you your own territory. That means we won’t allow another Nettl Franchise or Nettl System in the same territory as yours. However, you’re free to sell or market to clients anywhere – we don’t restrict that.
The size of your territory depends on business density. Our packages reflect that, and you can upgrade your package at any time.
