Franchise agreements – a part of our royalty database
According to International Franchise Association (IFA), a franchise is a method of distributing products or services involving a franchisor, who establishes the brand’s trademark or trade name and a business system, and a franchisee, who pays a royalty and often an initial fee for the right to do business under the franchisor’s name and system.
The most important elements of franchising are the brand and the franchisor’s business system.
First of all, a brand is an asset that consumers already know and choose, and it means that the franchisee has no necessity to prove the value of this brand from the very beginning.
Secondly, franchisors have their own well-developed business system and wish franchisees to meet certain criteria. To ensure this, franchisors are ready to provide their franchisees with support. This support often appears as a recognized brand name, site selection & development assistance, training, R&D of new products and services, etc.
