Review:

"The newly revised third edition is a classic book covering one of the most vibrant and vital sectors of the US economy. . . . The book is an excellent introduction, much more than a general academic treatment of the topic. . . . On behalf of the International Franchise Association, we are grateful to Dr. Khan for revising and bringing out a new edition of this classic book. It is a multi-purpose book, serving as classroom textbook, reference book, and business guidebook. We are delighted to recommend it on the menu for anyone who wants to learn more about this fascinating, fast-paced, and dynamic industry."

Steve Caldeira, CFE, President and CEO, International Franchise Association

"The revised and updated third edition of Restaurant Franchising truly delivers on its promise to introduce potential restaurateurs looking to purchase a franchise the benefits as well as the challenges of operating as a franchisee. Similarly, it provides the necessary recommendations and caveats to operators looking to franchise their concept. One of the book’s best features is the current examples that underscore the key points so nicely. It is also refreshing to find a book that has utility in the classroom and in the industry."

Dennis Reynolds, PhD, Ivar Haglund Endowed Professor, School of Hospitality Business Management, Carson College of Business, Washington State University, Pullman, Washington
