Types of Franchise

Product Distribution Franchise:
Simply sell the franchisor’s products and are supplier-dealer relationships. In product distribution franchising, the franchisor licenses its trademark and logo to the franchisees but typically does not provide them with an entire system for running their business. The industries where you most often find this type of franchising are soft drinks, automobiles and gasoline.
Business Format Franchise:
Business format franchises, on the other hand, not only use a franchisor’s product, service and trademark, but also the complete method to conduct the business itself, such as the marketing plan and operations manuals. Business format franchises are the most common type of franchise.
USA Today reported that the 10 most popular franchising opportunities are in these industries:
  • Fast Food

  • Retail
  • Service
  • Building and Construction
  • Business Services
