Introduction
The franchise business has been around a long time; in fact they go back as far as the 1850’s. The notion of selling off a business or a part of a business in order to expand into new areas usually came from the lack of investment funds from the business owner. While the business of franchising has grown over the years it all had to start somewhere. The concept of franchise businesses started with the Singer Sewing Machine Company in the 1850s. Isaac Singer had two problems that were keeping him from being successful. One, he didn’t have the capital to build a sales force, two, no one would buy a machine unless they were trained to use it. Singer’s solution was to charge a licensing fee to business people who would own rights to sell and train in certain geographical areas. “Franchising can be defined as a system based on a close and ongoing collaboration whereby a company, the franchisor, gets into partnership with one or several companies, the franchisee(s). Its prime aim is to develop a franchise concept designed in the first place by the franchisor.” A franchise is a business system in which private entrepreneurs purchase the rights to open and run a location of a larger company. The franchising company, or franchisor, signs a contractual agreement with the franchisee, explaining in detail the company’s rules for operating the franchise. In the United States, franchises are typically organized under state laws, although the Federal Trade Commission requires that franchisors provide full disclosure of franchise contracts in advance, to allow franchisees the opportunity to make a good business decision. Franchise businesses come with a

number of pros and cons that franchisees must take into account before signing the contract. Today, franchising is helping thousands of individuals be their own boss and own and operate their own business. Franchising allows entrepreneurs to be in business for themselves, but not by themselves. There is usually a much higher likelihood of success when an individual opens a franchise as opposed to a mom and pop business, since a proven business formula is in place. The products, services, and business operations have already been established.
