Restaurants are described as businesses that tends to prepare and serve foods and drinks to their customers in exchange of their money and such kind of businesses are also called as eateries. The goods, meals or foods and drinks offered by the restaurants or eateries are mostly being served by the waiters or waitresses and cooks of the restaurants, and eaten by their customers on the premises or grounds of the restaurant, but some restaurants are also offering take-out and home delivery services. There are a lot of different restaurants in every parts of the world, and each varies in their appearance, sizes, and offerings, such as their cuisines, their service models, and the price range of their menus. The restaurants that are called as airport restaurants, hotel restaurants, major fast food chains, and diners are serving and offering all the three major meals, such as the dinner, breakfast, and lunch, and even snacks. Some other restaurants are only offering and serving alcoholic beverages and a single meal, kids’ meal, and two meals, like dinner and lunch. There are a lot of restaurants that became very popular not just in their local area but in the whole world, and since they are already trusted by the people, some of these restaurants are offering franchising opportunities to the people who wants to own their restaurant franchise.
Franchising is defined as the practice of the right to use the brand and the business model of a popular restaurant, for a certain duration of time. Franchising is also a term used by business-minded individuals as a foreign market entry code, and it became known as an alternative of creating chain stores to produce and distribute service, products or any other goods that avoids the chain’s liability and investments. It has been reported that the success of the franchisor may be based on the success of their franchisees, but it is definitely better that the franchisee will buy the opportunity of franchising offered by popular restaurants. A franchise agreement is defined as a binding and legal contract between the franchisor and the franchisee, and its content will be based on the franchisee, the arbitrator, the state jurisdiction of the franchisor, and the franchise system of their local state. The businessmen and businesswomen who wants to purchase the franchising opportunities offered and provided by the best restaurants can locate them through the recommendations of their families and friends or colleagues, through the restaurant’s print ads, through the word of mouth of the restaurant’s existing clients, or through the use of the internet.
