INTRODUCTION TO THE BUSINESS
El Mercado Provenzal, Provencal Market in English. Is a restaurant/bar franchise chain low-cost of Spanish origin born in august 2012. It currently has more than 70 local franchised, spread throughout Spain. Its expansion plan aims to overcome the 150 establishments in 2015. In 2013 he received the National Award for Best Hospitality Franchise.
His business idea is simple: Cheap food and drinks from 12:00 p.m. to 3:00 a.m., including all types of beverages and especially beer.
The system for the start-up requires an initial investment of € 60,000 plus VAT and on a two-month period the local will open with immediate benefits. The franchisee only has to be trained in the centers of the business.

MARKETING- MIX
We know the marketing mix refers to the set of actions, or tactics, that a company uses to promote its brand or product in the market. And the 4Ps make up a typical marketing mix - Price, Product, Promotion and Place. Let’s apply it.

PRODUCT: Offers a great variety of dishes and beverages at a low-cost without losing quality. Beer will be its flagship product.
PRICE: The strategy they are following is to keep prices down with the intention of attracting more customers and thus increase the profit margin.
PLACE: The local has to be located in a place with lots of pedestrian and decorated like an antique market of the Provence.
PROMOTION: Since they do not advertise the business, its main promotion is worth-of-mouth due to its low price and high quality.

REVIEW
The business is too “young” for us to make a deep analysis, but at the moment we can say that…...

Subway Franchise

...Subway Franchise Course Instructor’s Name 11 August 2012 Subway Franchise The franchise concept has several advantages for both the franchisor and the franchisee. For the franchisor, offering a franchise arrangement means an easy access to capital formation brought about by the investments of franchisees (Om Sai Ram Center for Financial Management Research, 2006). Furthermore, it provides incremental income for the franchisor through royalty payments. Another advantage of the franchise concept is that it makes possible a faster expansion program for the franchisor supported by motivated distributors in the person of the franchisees (Om Sai Ram Center for Financial Management Research, 2006). The franchisees stand to benefit too from a franchise agreement. The franchisee gets to experience entrepreneurial autonomy using a proven concept, often with extensive recognition of the brand name (Om Sai Ram Center for Financial Management Research, 2006). The franchisee also benefits from the training programs provided by the franchisor, coupled with continuing supervision of the store. Although there are advantages to owning a franchise, franchisees are faced with disadvantages too. Decision-making is quite limited since the franchisee should follow the guidelines set by the franchisor (Om Sai Ram Center for Financial Management Research, 2006). In terms of purchasing, the franchisee is forced to purchase supplies and equipment from the......

Franchise Development

...FRANCHISE DEVELOPMENT – DOING IT RIGHT For those of us experienced in franchising, we are often amazed when companies considering the establishment of a new franchise system (even large, well-established international companies) begin the process at the end - the development of the legal agreements. Presented with a lengthy questionnaire by their legal counsel, they are asked to provide information necessary to prepare franchise agreements and disclosure documents. The problem, though, is that the questions are often their main guide to how their franchise system should be structured. As a potential franchisor you may not fully understand all of the questions or have an independent frame of reference to know what all your available options truly are. The attorneys, knowledgeable in the law and prior agreements, often will provide you with advice and direction. However, without the benefit of being able to evaluate business alternatives, conduct research, and fully explore the strategic considerations that most of these decisions require, the franchise system will often end up operating as a legal vehicle for expansion rather than what it truly should be, a business structure for expansion. Since the franchising process began with the development of legal documents, new franchisors may view their franchise system as a legal device governed primarily by the rule of law. Experienced franchisors understand that while the law is an element of franchising, it truly is a minor......

Franchise Paper

...students who wanted a nice meal for a moderate price. The first restaurant was called Buffalo Wild Wings and Weck, which was a type of bread that they used to serves their burgers on. Shorty after starting they added on a third partner Mark Lutz. The three men had absolutely no experience in the restaurant business but were doing exceptionally well by providing the college students with what they want. The company had its ups and downs financially during the first couple of years; but as its financial standings improved more restaurants were opened in six different locations. By 1991 the three partners had decided to franchise the business so they reached out to a law firm called Francorp do help them do this. During this time the fee for starting a franchise with Buffalo Wild Wings was between $15,000 and $20,000, a percentage of the sales, and each franchise was required to use BWW’s specialized bottled wings sauce. After doing this BWW incorporated a bar to its restaurants including TV’s mounted to the walls that displayed various sporting events that were on during different times. This added another target market for the company and “sales of alcohol contributed as much as thirty percent of revenues.” With the success of BWW they had to find someone who was qualified enough to take care of the financial aspect of their company so they hired Sally Smith as the Chief Financial Officer (CFO). As CFO Smith was in charge of improving the companies financial problems......

Franchises

...Franchises & Business Plans What is a franchise? Using examples from the real world, explain three advantages to the franchiser and to the franchisee. A franchise is where a business with a well-known brand name (the franchisor) lets a person (the franchisee) or a group of people set up their own business using that brand. This is in exchange for an initial fee and continuing royalty payments (a certain percentage of turnover or profit) for as long as the franchise lasts. A franchise is not a type of legal structure in itself. The liability for the person using the franchise depends on the how the business is established. A franchisee can choose which legal structure to adopt, although the franchisor may recommend a type. They have unlimited liability if they are in business as a sole trader or partnership but have limited liability if they set up the franchise as a company. Advantages for the franchiser: * The firm does not have to spend a large amount of money in order to expand * The products necessary for the franchise to operate are under the franchisers direct control * Issuing franchises should generate a continuous stream of revenue from franchisees who are determined to succeed Disadvantages for the franchiser: * The control it has over the product is not as great as if the business sold the product itself, bad publicity from a franchisee could affect the brand image * Franchisers have to offer continuous support, training and development......

...Franchise My franchise which I chose was Mc Donald’s they sell food to people, they are based in many parts of the country. Franchise is when you use buy the name and products of a large and effective company. The size of this business is large because it has over 250 employees. It is also international according to scale because it is based in many countries like Pakistan, England, France, America and many more. A franchisee is a business or person who has the right to trade as a franchise no one else has the right. A franchisor is a business that is very success full and that can give the right of franchise to other new businesses to use their label. However some of the profit must be given to the franchisor. The owner of this business is the franchisor. There are some of advantages like one of them which are that the owner does not have the freewill to make all of the judgements most of the time judgements related to the products and prices. Problems can be discussed with the franchisor.so my franchise is mc Donald’s and they allow people to buy their name and open a business. They are not buying the company they are buying the name. The person must share the profit with the franchisor. An advantage for this person is that everything he needs go to do with the business will be given to him by the franchisor. So if a person opens a mc Donald’s through franchise and he needs a supply of oil and ingredients he can ask and it will be given to him by the franchisor. One thing......

...pages that are not counted as part of the written page requirements. All graphs must be discussed and explained within the body of the text. Newspaper and magazine articles may be cited but do not count as part of the required references. 1 A REVIEW OF FRANCHISE THEORY INTRODUCTION In service based industries one of the fastest growing forms of market structure is that of franchise agreements. Certain aspects of franchise contracts tend to be idiosyncratic in nature thereby attracting a great deal of interest by academics and business analysts in recent years. Various explanations have been proposed for the widespread use of franchise contracts in certain industries. While a great deal of the franchise contract has been explained in the literature, there remains certain aspects of this form of arrangement that has yet to be addressed. This paper intends to address two of these issues as well as proposing an alternative modelling approach to franchise contracts. The second section of this paper describes the basic structure of franchise contracts. The third section discusses the various explanations that have been proposed to explain franchising. The fourth section sets two aspects of the franchise contract that has not been addressed in the literature. The …rst of these is existence of both corporate owned outlets and franchised outlets within the same organization. Some authors have predicted that one form or the other would come to dominate the......

...Running head: franchising and licensing Name: Course: Instructor: Date: Control over franchisee by the franchisor occurs when the franchisee deals with great amount of tasks for the management of the franchise. The franchisee is not capable of building his own success and customer base for his business. The franchisee is not proficient in run his independent business, therefore involves the franchise to maintain control over his business. The franchisee needs specific information on product development and market analysis of the product, the authority is delegated to the franchisor. Hiring a company owned business is not the same as managing franchisees. Most court has advised the right to control to determine weather a relationship between the franchisor and franchisee should give to liability Paul (2010). A valid agency relationship is created. Chris exists and a principle of existence is identified at the time of contracts. The legal capacity principle at the time the act was carried out and at the time of ratification is identified. It appears to have no reason why AL never explained the involvement of Chris. Chris has fulfilled his duties as an agent and the amendment will not be enforceable in court if Al makes a contract with Ben for Chris to be ratified, If Ben is not happy to contract with Chris. Ben has a right of liability, his liability differ to AL. The agent has no authority to sue or being sued on the contract unless he chooses to ratify it...

The results of the survey have been broadly categorized under the following heads * Growth drivers for Franchising in India * Franchise Operating Models * Franchisee Satisfaction * Franchisee Support & Relationship Management * Challenges in Franchising * Conflict Management Growth drivers of franchising in India India, with its large population has always been a consumption story and will continue to remain so for the years to come. Burgeoning consumer class with an increasing appetite for consumption is considered as the biggest growth driver, both by franchisors and franchisees. Increase in entrepreneurial drive coupled with risk taking abilities has steered a number of people, especially those with no-specific business background, take a plunge into franchising based business models. Franchising as a business model has achieved stability over the course of time, giving new entrepreneurs increased confidence on the success of their ventures.

Franchise Act

...Franchising Law in Malaysia A comprehensive analysis of the Franchise Act Introduction 1. The business of franchising has transformed the face of most business practices in Malaysia and has become a revolutionary way for Malaysian companies to develop, increase their production capability and expand their distribution chain both vertically and horizontally. Franchising fosters business opportunities for Malaysian franchisees, particularly small start-up companies (the “Franchisee”) under the guidance and assistance of another company (the “Franchisor”), which has the requisite experience and knowledge of the market practice and industry. The Franchisee may leverage on the Franchisor’s international and/or regional reputation and goodwill through its use of the Franchisor’s trade marks and intellectual property rights as well as the Franchisor’s tested technologies, trade secrets and business systems. Before the enactment of the Franchise Act 1998 (the “Franchise Act”) on 8 October 1998, franchising in Malaysia was governed by contractual principles and the absence of complex statutory provisions or guidelines allowed parties to freely negotiate the terms of their franchising arrangement. In contrast, the Franchise Act highly regulates the franchising industry as it not only controls the terms of any franchise agreement but also implements a systematic scheme of registration for the Franchisor, Franchisee and franchise brokers. Although this has created a......
