What's a chain vs. merely "multiple locations"

newhound | Oct 20, 2006 01:56 PM

Reading a thread on the New England board raised this question for me: At what point do you consider something a "chain" versus a place that has simply multiple locations? Is it corporate ownership that makes it a chain? Can a family have ten spread-out branches of their own sub shop and still not see themselves as a chain?

What's the difference-- with examples, please!
