Franchise development (Franchising)

The development of a franchise is necessary when the owner has decided to scale his business with minimal investment on his part and with a guarantee of making a profit in the future. This is a form of business organization in which the owner (franchisor) transfers to an independent businessman or company (franchisee) the right to organize a similar business under his own trademark. This business can be associated with the production, sale of goods and / or the provision of services for a fee in exchange for compliance with the rules of doing business – a franchise package.

What conditions are needed to create a franchise?

  1. An authoritative, well-established brand on the market.
  2. Clear methods, technology of work, certain know-how or intellectual portfolio of the business as a whole.
  3. Well-coordinated team, proven over the years.
  4. Reliable suppliers and contractors.

    Based on the research of the International Franchise Association (IFA), the world traditionally uses the following approach to payments within the framework of franchising:

    • The lump-sum fee is a one-time payment-greeting, it is made as a guarantee of fair use of the trademark of another IP, compliance with the rules and standards.
    • Royalty – periodic payments (once a month, quarter or year), they are a specific percentage of revenue, can be fixed or mixed.
