Purchasing Restrictions & Limited Product Line
Franchise owners must often buy their supplies from the parent company or from approved suppliers.
High franchising fees and royalties
is a type of business in which a franchiser sells to another person (franchisee) the rights to use their business name and vend their products and services for a limited time
is the practice of using another firm’s successful business model.

A franchisee is the one that purchases a license from the business

Franchises are considered a hybrid type of business ownership
Franchisers charge high fees for the right to use the company name.
They also charge royalties
Franchiser and Franchisee
Starting a Franchise
Strict operating standards
franchises such as McDonald's provide the franchisee with location and all the equipment to start the business
Franchise owners must follow all the rules laid out in the franchising agreement for such matters as: hours of operation, operating procedures, and dress code
A franchise is one of the easiest types of businesses to start because the franchiser is usually responsible for the equipment
A franchisor does not exercise substantial or significant control over the day-to-day operations of its franchisee

The franchisee has sole responsibility

Franchises are like chain stores except without the liability and investment
The word franchise comes from the Anglo-French word
which means free
The Give and Take

The franchisee receives permission to use the brand and products
However, they have to shoulder the heavy financial burden by themselves

- Second-largest Canadian-established restaurant franchise, behind Tim Hortons
- The franchisee is usually charged a $25,000 one-time franchise fee, excluding property fees
