The Rise of Franchising

the rise of franchising special research report Photo by
In Morocco, Franchising started in the 60’s. At the beginning, the growth rate was very low with franchising networks opening every 5 years. The first franchising networks entering the Moroccan market were car rental brands (Avis, Hertz, Europcar). Nothing surprising when we know that Morocco is a tourism place!     There are important geographical disparities in terms of franchises implantation in Morocco. From now, that is in cities like Casablanca and Rabat, two booming cities, that we can find most franchises. In 2007, we could find 12% of Moroccan franchises  in Rabat, and 27% in Casablanca. ...
goods and avoid investment and liability over a chain. The franchisor's success is the success of the franchisees. The franchisee is said to have a greater incentive than a direct employee because he or she has a direct stake in the business. However, except in the US, and now in China (2007) where there are explicit Federal (and in the US, State) laws covering franchise, most of the world recognizes 'franchise' but rarely makes legal provisions for it.

This is for the People of the Sun* | Filipino Voices
I’d like to throw my hat into the whole hubbub about mainstream media and blogging taking place right now here at Filipino Voices, but somehow, I feel the urge to voice out something.  I’d like to talk about Filipinos who live on their voices.  I’d like to talk about a generation of young Filipinos who, in more ways than one, never see the Sun. I was reading the news online when I came across this snippet of news : Accenture is going to lay off 500 workers because of a “redundancy” program.  I don’t know what “redundancies” are, and I’m sure this is a necessary move for many ... market research, surveys and trends


Fast Food Nation
CHEYENNE MOUNTAIN SITS on the eastern slope of Colorado’s Front Range, rising steeply from the prairie and overlooking the city of Colorado Springs. From a distance, the mountain appears beautiful and serene, dotted with rocky outcroppings, scrub oak, and ponderosa pine. It looks like the backdrop of an old Hollywood western, just another gorgeous Rocky Mountain vista. And yet Cheyenne Mountain is hardly pristine. One of the nation’s most important military installations lies deep within it, housing units of the North American Aerospace Command, the Air Force Space Command, and the United States Space Command.

OAK BROOK, Ill. -- To gauge this pell-mell nation's velocity, visit here with Jim Skinner, CEO of a company on pace to have a net income for 2007 of $3.46 billion, up 12.7 percent, on revenues of almost $23 billion. The evolution of McDonald's mirrors that of the nation in which it serves 27 million customers a day. Americans commonly say this or that distinction is "as clear as night and day." Americans, ricocheting around the country around the clock, are erasing the distinction between night and day. Breakfast, the meal most apt to be eaten at home, now accounts for more than 25 percent of U.S. business ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

Metro franchises rise as proven models hit the ground running
Widespread job losses combined with strong regional demographics have turned metro Denver into a popular spot for franchises. But even though many people who've lost their jobs want to go into business for themselves, getting financing remains a challenge. As a result, some franchise companies are making special offers to lure franchisees, and many landlords are negotiating more favorable lease rates to attract tenants. "When the economy lags, franchising sees an increase in the number of people becoming franchisees," said Corey Bowman, vice president of franchise development for The Pita Pit, a Coeur ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

The Copenhagen Climate Change Conference ended in failure today. Never mind the predictable rhetoric from several leaders who welcomed the tepid accord signed after two weeks of intense, acrimonious and chaotic negotiations. They include President Obama who called it "an important breakthrough," British Prime Minister Brown who saw it as "a vital first step," and the UN Secretary General, Ban Ki-Moon who hailed it as "an important beginning." But even they could not fully hide their disappointment. Such is the confusion that the very status of the accord is in doubt since it was not formally approved as the delegates only ...
