What is a Restaurant Franchise?

Not all chain restaurants are franchises. For instance, even though a restaurant is globally recognized, it can be owned by corporate and run by company employees. A franchise restaurant is purchased, and owners are independent and buy the rights to open and operate a location.

The franchisee pays royalties to the corporate office as part of the deal. In return, corporate implements branding characteristics and takes care of advertising, menu design, training, conferences, and problem-solving for all its independently owned locations.
