Abstract

It is crucial to franchisors to be able to collect franchise royalties in the foreign markets, where they have invested, created employment and introduced superior goods, services and technology. However, in one instance since 2001 international food chains operating in Pakistan have faced this challenge of not being able to repatriate royalty revenues out of Pakistan owing to a faulty policy of the country, which stands highlighted in this article.
