In the article, Ben analyzes the sometimes difficult interplay between provisions in a franchise agreement and an operations manual, particularly in a mature hotel franchise system.
Established hotel franchise systems tend to have operating manuals with extensive requirements relating to virtually every aspect of the operation of the hotel, from the brand and quality assurance, to the use of technology.
