Corporate-owned stores, as with franchising, include rights such as being able to use a business name and a business model. But business owners in the two companies have different rights.
For example, in franchising, the owners have rights such as hiring and firing employees, be involved in contracts with suppliers and manage daily operations. Comparing franchising to corporate-owned, and the management freedom tightens. In a company store, the original company controls and oversees all operations, even contracts for supplies. The corporation handles the management decisions, including hiring and firing of employees.
