The Handbook challenges both practitioners and scholars to give attention to the conclusions of scholarly research on this business model. Practitioners can benefit from the results of high quality scientific research, and scholars can find exciting opportunities for contributing to the body of knowledge of a subject that has not received sufficient attention in educational institutions.

Chapter 23: An exploration of franchising in Africa

Rozenn Perrigot


With promising projected growth in terms of economic indicators and population, African countries have become attractive to both non-African and African franchisors. This chapter’s objective is to initiate research on franchising in Africa by looking at concrete examples of international and African franchise businesses in various African countries with a special focus on South Africa and Egypt. This chapter adds to the literature on franchising in emerging countries and, more specifically, to the limited stream dealing with franchising in Africa. It also contributes to the practice by providing an overview of the franchise business in South Africa and Egypt and by highlighting the opportunities and challenges for both international and African franchisors.
