A franchise is a retail outlet owned by independent third party operators through which a company distributes its products or services. Generally, the independent operator pays an initial fee and royalties to the owner of the franchise.
In the case of a franchise, the franchisee is given the right to use and distribute the franchisor's trademark, logo, and other commercial brand entities. The franchisor retains substantial control over how the franchisee operates their business, how the business is portrayed and how trademarks are utilized. The new site often has requirements in terms of the placement of the business, hours of operation, production and accounting methods, training, site design, and more. The franchisee is also required to pay their franchisor a variety of fees.
