Questions about league franchises

I mainly ask this because I was talking with someone last night who recently sold an APA franchise he operated for a while. I didn't ask how much he sold it for but I'm very aware that any franchise owner, whether it be fast food or pool, needs to put in a lot of work if they want to be successful with it.

So my question is, is the APA the only league that offers franchising opportunities? I'm no expert on how it works but that's the only one that I've heard that sells licenses to league operators. Do any of the others offer that or is it just sanctioning?

Also, being that it's 2021 and leagues have been around for years now, are there any more growing opportunities left? Or does it depend on which area you are running out of? Because I can't imagine somewhere like NYC has a big growing opportunity considering how many APA leagues are there, at least from what I've been told.

I know that NAPA offers franchise opportunities. A buddy of mine bought the franchise for the county where we used to play, and for another county as well. He had plans to open up some leagues in our area, but this was a bit before COVID hit. For the past year now league pool has been practically non-existant for this area.
NAPA is more about cash payouts than APA where the trip to Vegas is the big prize. And NAPA doesn't limit a team to a certian overall skill level for the team, so you can keep a team together even after newer players all get better.
