Franchising in Africa 2014 - Book Trailer

Franchising has experienced phenomenal growth around the world and Africa is no exception. The saturation of Western markets, the relaxation of trade barriers and the globalization of business have pushed franchisors to new African markets to distribute their products and services. This book provides an overview of franchising in emerging African markets. It focuses on the drafting of the relevant documents, the financing of franchise transactions, and the local legal issues in selected African countries - Angola, Botswana, Burundi, Cape Verde, Egypt, Ethiopia, Ghana, Kenya, Mozambique, Nigeria, Rwanda, South Africa, Tunisia, Zambia and Zimbabwe. It serves as a reference tool for lawyers, business people, and academics interested in franchising on the African continent.
