2 What is franchising? “A franchise operation is a contractual relationship between the franchisor and franchisee in which the franchisor offers or is obliged to maintain a continuing interest in the business of the franchisee in such areas as know-how and training; wherein the franchisee operates under a common trade name, format and/or procedure owned or controlled by the franchisor, and in which the franchisee has or will make a substantial capital investment in his business from his own resources.” - Definition by International Franchise Association

3 What is franchising? Legal and commercial arrangement concerning the successful business of a franchisor Use of franchisor’s trade name, format, system and/or procedure under licence Means to raise capital and expand quickly Assistance to franchisee Marketing, management, advertising, store design, standards specifications Payment by franchisee by way of royalty, licensee fee or other means

4 Franchising is more than distributorship
What is franchising? Franchising is more than distributorship Extends to an entire operation or method of business Greater assistance, control and longer duration Distributor merely re-sells products to retailers or customers

5 TYPES OF FRANCHISE 3 main types of franchise:
Product distribution franchise; Business format franchise; and Management franchise.

A product distribution franchise model is very much like a supplier-dealer relationship. Typically, the franchisee merely sells the franchisor’s products. However, this type of franchise will also include some form of integration of the business activities.

Examples of famous product distribution franchise:

Produces the syrup concentrate Sells the syrup concentrate FRANCHISEE Produces the final drink Retail Stores Restaurants & F&B Outlets Vending Machine Operators

In a business format franchise, the integration of the business is more complete. The franchisee not only distributes the franchisor’s products and services under the franchisor’s trade mark, but also implements the franchisor’s format and procedure of conducting the business.

10 Famous Examples

outlet in Sale, Australia outlet in Marseille, France

12 MANAGEMENT FRANCHISE A form of service agreement.
The franchisee provides the management expertise, format and/or procedure for conducting the business.
