An independently owned local unit of a staffing supplier that acts as a franchisor. A franchise agreement usually includes an authorization to sell staffing services in a particular place. As typically executed among staffing suppliers, in a franchise relationship, as opposed to a licensee relationship, the temporary employees are usually employed and paid by the franchisee, not the franchisor. Staffing companies with franchises typically include in their revenue only the fee they earn from franchisees, not the total system sales of their franchise network. (See also: Licensee.)
