A franchise is a method of running an enterprise with a ‘blueprint’ designed by a franchiser licensed to the franchisee.
In exchange for a fee of varying amounts, you, (the ‘franchisee’) pay a fee to the company with the product/service, (the ‘franchisor’), for the rights to market the product or service usually for a set time period in a specific area.
In the UK there are currently more than 700 different businesses run as franchises.
