Franchising (from the French for honesty or freedom) is a method of doing business wherein a franchisor licenses trademarks and tried and proven methods of doing business to a franchisee in exchange for a recurring payment, and usually a percentage piece of gross sales or gross profits as well as the annual fees.
Various tangibles and intangibles such as national or international advertising, training, and other support services are commonly made available by the franchisor, and may indeed be required by the franchisor, which generally requires audited books, and may subject the franchisee or the outlet to periodic and surprise spot checks.
Failure of such tests typically involve non-renewal or cancellation of franchise rights. A business operated under a franchise arrangement is often called a chain store, franchise outlet, or simply franchise
The licensed use of the Franchisors intellectual property is part of all franchise systems. Intellectual property covers know-how of the operational side of the franchisors business, any IT involved within the business, the accounts and admin side of the business and the use of any trademarks and trade names belonging to the Franchisors business.
The franchisor retains ownership of the intellectual property always and as the network of franchises grows, the value of the intellectual property and brand grows accordingly with it.
