FAQ: Franchising and PPP

How Does Franchising Work?

Franchising is an arrangement where a name brand company grants a local entrepreneur the right to use its business name, trademarks, and processes to produce and market a good or service. The business owner usually pays a one-time fee and a percentage of sales revenue as royalty. Typically, the brand provides national advertising and support, while the independent owner is responsible for day-to-day operations of the business, including hiring and scheduling employees.
