| 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.
