Franchising a Definition

A form of business organisation in which a firm which already has a successful product or service (the franchisor) enters into a continuing contractual relationship with other businesses (franchisees) operating under the franchisor's trade name and usually with the franchisor's guidance, in exchange for a fee. Some of the most popular franchises in the United States include Subway, McDonalds, and 7-Eleven.

Franchising is a business distribution model focused on brand development and unit expansion based upon the collaboration and combined efforts of both franchisor and franchisee.
