What is Franchising

Franchising is a method of marketing goods and services. The basic features of a typical franchising arrangement include: 

1. The franchisor allowing the franchisee to use its name or brand,

2. The franchisor exercising continuing control over the franchisee,

3. The franchisor providing assistance to the franchisee, and

4. The franchisee making periodical payments to the franchisor.

Advantages & Disadvantages

Franchising provides an opportunity for the franchisor's business to grow by linking them with the franchisee who has the capital and manpower to do so.

A franchisor is able to expand its business in a relatively short period of time. The main disadvantage will be the loss of control over the day-to-day operation.

On the other hand, a franchisee will benefit from the franchisor's experience and use its capital investment ....

Risks

Yes. The franchisee may not be capable of running its business properly, or it may not be sufficiently capitalised. In addition, the franchisor might fail to maintain a high quality level of continuing support services or it may make mistakes or policy decisions that hurt the franchisee.
