Hi Frank,

Short answer is yes. BUT be careful of Payroll Tax issues down the track. A subsidiary of another entity is automatically grouped for Payroll Tax Issues.

I am not Lawyer but franchise laws should permit this to occur. I actually have something kinda similar. I run 5 Accounting firms and I run the franchise and then I own parts of the franchisees.

Make sure you get some good structuring advice.
