The term franchise refers to a type of business in which an entity or an individual receives a license to conduct a commercial enterprise. Franchises enable a franchisee to market a well-known product or service in return for an initial fee and an on-going payment. The franchisor usually provides assistance with management, merchandising and advertising. Major franchise networks, which have grown rapidly in the United States since the 1960s, include fast-food restaurants, gasoline stations, motels, automobile dealerships, and real-estate agencies, with the concept expanding into many other fields.
