What is a Franchise?

A franchise is a marketing concept used by organizations and companies for expanding their brand awareness and distributing their products and services. 

In a franchise, an individual or a company (franchisee) obtains the business rights from the parent company (franchisor) by paying an initial fee, to establish their business, and operate using the franchisor’s business trademark, business name and system of sales.
