Franchisors typically provide lots of aid to their franchisees, including the following:
Franchisors provide their franchisees with a detailed operations manual that contains instructions for carrying out their operating system. The operations manual lists the rules, standards and specifications of the franchise as well as the specific responsibilities and tasks of the franchisor. Information such as performance/management standards, processes and protocol and employee roles is also contained in the manual. In addition to an operations manual, franchisors provide operating system and business training for franchisees. Training can take place at any location designated by the franchisor, including corporate headquarters.
