    That's true only if the "head office" owns the locations. A franchise is independently owned and head office receives revenue from the owner based upon the franchisee contract; usually an up-front lump sum to start and some kind of volume based revenue arrangement. Fewer active franchises equals less revenue.

    And I understand that. But sometimes when franchises aren't doing well the head office reduces the number to focus their efforts on the strongest performing locations. The old Country Style donut franchise did this back in the 90's.
