How a Franchise Works

Essentially, a franchise is an instance where the franchise owner owns the rights to the name, the logo, the products, and the stores, and is able to sell these rights. When someone approaches you to purchase the rights to your franchise, you will be responsible for determining whether or not they can keep it up. This extends from their desired location to their net worth. Additionally, the more complex the business, the more contact you will need to keep with the franchisee.
