Definition of a Franchise

A franchise is a business owned by a sole proprietor or a partnership that grants a franchisee access to a franchisor’s proprietary business knowledge, processes, and trademarks, allowing the franchisee to sell a product or service under the franchisor’s business name and established brand channel. The franchisee usually pays the franchisor an initial start-up fee and an annual licensing fee.

So, you might ask, how does a franchise work? Franchising is about relationship building and leveraging the franchisor’s established business model and brand’s value in high-growth markets like a commercial cleaning franchise. But, most importantly, franchising is about the relationship the franchisor has with its franchisees. It is built on the support of franchisees. It meets its obligations to deliver the products and services to its brands’ standards.

Where Did Franchising Come From?

The franchising concept dates back to the Middle Ages, with noblemen being granted the power to protect territory and collect taxes on behalf of the crown. Around 1602, the Dutch Republic founded the shipping franchise, Dutch East India Company, to conduct exploration and trade between the Cape of Good Hope and the Straits of Magellan. Here we see the beginnings of a legal framework and a new way to create and build new businesses. The Dutch Republic supported franchisees, and in return, they paid royalties back to the Dutch Republic.
