So we looked around the state where a franchise started in Montana and only has locations in other cities or towns in Montana.

We had to be careful because many franchises started in Montana but have expanded to other states in the Pacific Northwest. We wanted to focus on franchises that are specifically only available in Montana.

Such places like the Rib & Chop House and The Pickle Barrel, even though they are Montana franchises, won't be on the list due to locations outside Montana. Even though they won't be a part of this list, we have found some phenomenal Montana franchises you won't see anywhere else in America.
