What is a Franchise Restaurant?

Are you aware that not all restaurant chains are franchises? It's true that a lot of popular eateries are franchised, but there are a handful that are corporate-owned and operated, so the company owns the location. What does it mean to be a franchisee? It means you hire your own staff, oversee operations, and are responsible for the business aspects. Purchasing and running a franchise location means that you are also responsible for the business's success.

The agreement that comes with buying a brand is that franchisees pay a percentage to the home office and receive solid branding and a service model. Corporate then takes care of marketing, menu design, further instruction, conferences, and problem-solving for all its franchisees.
