A franchise is a business model where one business owner (the "franchisor") sells the rights to their business logo, name, and model to an independent entrepreneur (the "franchisee"). Restaurants, hotels, and service-oriented businesses are commonly franchised.
Franchises allow you the opportunity to operate your own business, with the framework in place to help you be successful.
