Purchasing and running a restaurant franchise location means the franchisee is also responsible for the company's success.

The agreement that comes with buying a brand is that franchisees pay a percentage to corporate and get branding guidelines and a service model. Corporate then takes care of marketing, menu items, further instruction, conferences, and damage control for all its franchisees.
