This chapter extends recent research efforts by mapping the knowledge about family enterprises generated through case study methodology and its evolution over time. Its aim is to point scholars toward relevant knowledge gaps that can be effectively bridged through case study qualitative research. To accomplish this, the authors employed the methodology of science mapping through bibliometric analysis (specifically, co-word analysis and bibliographic coupling) and charted the intellectual structure of the field along with its conceptual building blocks. In an effort to guide future qualitative research efforts, the chapter also discusses the main objectives that case studies have served in the family business research domain, the best practices that scholars should adhere to, and indicates the most receptive outlets for qualitative case-based study. The authors’ analysis of the literature suggests that case studies will continue to be a powerful methodology for theory building and theory extension; nevertheless, only research efforts able to adhere to the highest standard for empirical rigor should be accepted in the field.

This chapter begins with an overview of the significant role that the franchise model plays in the global economy. Despite the number of enterprises, volume of revenues generated, and jobs created, franchising has received relatively little attention in scholarly publications and in educational programmes. Prior literature reviews are cited, highlighting subjects that have received some attention. Brief previews of the other chapters in the Handbook are provided. The chapter and the entire Handbook are offered as encouragement for further research into franchising.

Although family firms are prevalent in franchising, they have received minimal attention in the academic literature. The chapter reviews the studies on family firm franchises, from the perspectives of both the franchisee and franchisor. The chapter explores theories of franchising that have applicability to family businesses: the Model of Franchise System Development and the Sociological Model, and suggests succession as an addition to both models. Drawing from the family business literature, the chapter introduces the concept of ‘familiness’ as a factor to be considered in ownership and management succession in franchising. The chapter proposes areas with potential for future research which may enable smoother leadership transitions.
