New Franchising Books From CCH Explore Emerging Opportunities Around The Globe

(RIVERWOODS, ILL., September 24, 2001) – Showing companies how to conduct franchising in the countries where 75 percent of the world’s economic growth is expected to take place in the next two decades is the focus of a pair of new books from CCH INCORPORATED (CCH), a leading provider of business information law and publisher of the CCH Business Franchise Guide. To pinpoint both the opportunities and potential pitfalls of franchising as a means of entry into these emerging markets, CCH has published International Franchising in Emerging Markets: Central and Eastern Europe and Latin America and International Franchising in Emerging Markets: China, India, and Other Asian Countries.

Each book consists of informative articles by international authorities and features state-of-the-art research. They provide an overview of each area’s legal, political, economic and social environment and offer case studies of companies already doing business in these markets. Experts also analyze the potential various regions hold for franchisors in particular industries.

A number of authors point out the unique challenges associated with franchising in various countries, such as their legal systems and public opinion regarding franchising within these markets.
