Business Franchise Selection
A 9 page paper assessing the value of franchising as an approach to business ownership and operation. There were problems with many franchises in the past, and even McDonald's relatively recently relented to consumer pressure (in the form of falling sales) to alter its menu to reflect consumer – rather than McDonald's – preferences.
