Franchising now represents more than 10% of the US economy and 50% of US retail sales, and this winning business model is now showing exceptional promise outside the US as well. Both franchisors and franchisees are beginning to discover immense opportunities to extend operations or build new franchises in emerging markets. Of course, success will depend on their ability to execute - and extending successful franchising operations outside their home markets requires significant new skills, knowledge, and expertise. In Global Franchising Operations Management, the field's leading expert and author brings together an unprecedented collection of in-depth cases that illuminate the field's unexplored opportunities, key pitfalls, and proven best practices. Ilan Alon thoroughly covers key challenges from both the franchisor and franchisee perspective, teaching lessons learned by Marks and Spencer, Ruth's Chris Steakhouse, Athlete's Foot, Kodak, Sari Organic, and other pioneers. Through these cases, he addresses pivotal issues such as: Should you take your franchise operation global? What unique marketing and demand management challenges will you face in doing so? Do Master Franchisee or Micro-Franchising strategies make sense for you? What are their risks, and can those risks be managed? How can you efficiently manage logistics, supply chains, and operations in unfamiliar markets? Whatever your role or potential role in global franchising operations, this book will be an indispensable resource.
