Franchising
FRANCHISING is the practice of the right to use a firm's business model and brand for a prescribed period of time. The word "franchise" is of Anglo-French derivation—from franc, meaning free—and is used both as a noun and as a (transitive) verb. For the franchisor, the franchise is an alternative to building "chain stores " to distribute goods that avoids the investments and liability of a chain. The franchisor's success depends on the success of the franchisees. The franchisee is said to have a greater incentive than a direct employee because they have a direct stake in the business. Thirty-three countries—including the United States and Australia—have laws that explicitly regulate franchising, with the majority of all other countries having laws which have a direct or indirect effect on franchising.

is also used as a foreign market entry mode

Malt
MALT is germinated cereal grains that have been dried in a process known as "malting ". The grains are made to germinate by soaking in water, and are then halted from germinating further by drying with hot air. Malting grains develops the enzymes required for modifying the grain's starches into various types of sugar , including the monosaccharide glucose , the disaccharide maltose , the trisaccharide maltotriose , and higher sugars called maltodextrines . It also develops other enzymes , such as proteases , which break down the proteins in the grain into forms that can be used by yeast . Depending on when the malting process is stopped one gets a preferred starch enzyme ratio and partly converted starch into fermentable sugars. Malt also contains small amounts of other sugars, such as sucrose and fructose , which are not products of starch modification but were already in the grain. Further conversion to fermentable sugars is achieved during the mashing process
