What is a franchisee?


Last Update a year ago

A franchisee is an individual or entity that enters into a contractual agreement with a franchisor to operate a business using the franchisor's established brand, systems, and support. 

As a franchisee, they are granted the right to use the franchisor's trademarks, business model, and intellectual property in a specific location or territory. In exchange for this right, the franchisee typically pays an initial franchise fee and ongoing royalties or fees to the franchisor. 

The franchisee is responsible for managing the day-to-day operations of the business, including hiring and training employees, marketing, and adhering to the franchisor's standards and guidelines. 

While the franchisee enjoys the benefits of an established brand and proven business model, they are still an independent business owner responsible for their own success and profitability.
