    • BLS Institute of Management Feb 6, 2010
    • What is Franchising? “A franchise operation is a contractual relationship between the franchisor and franchisee in which the franchisor offers or is obliged to maintain a continuing interest in the business of the franchisee in such areas as know-how and training; wherein the franchisee operates under a common trade name, format and/or procedure owned or controlled by the franchisor, and in which the franchisee has or will make a substantial capital investment in his business from his own resources.” - Definition by International Franchise Association NIIT Confidential – Perspective Plan 2011-13 2
    • Why Franchise? • Legal and commercial arrangement concerning the successful business of a franchisor • Use of franchisor’s trade name, format, system and/or procedure under license • Means to raise capital and expand quickly • Assistance to franchisee – Marketing, management, advertising, store design, standards specifications • Payment by franchisee by way of royalty, licensee fee or other means 3

    • Types of franchise: Business Format franchise • In a business format franchise, the integration of the business is more complete. • The franchisee not only distributes the franchisor’s products and services under the franchisor’s trade mark, but also implements the franchisor’s format and procedure of conducting the business. 9
