Business Spotlight Fast-Food Trade Booming Along Thursday, Auguil 20, 19X0 THE IETHBRIDCE HERALD 3 y TORONTO (CP) For scores of small businessmen across the country, the humble hamburger has become the basis of suc- cess. The hamburger, along with chicken and ice cream, arc the major items in the fast-food business which has mush- roomed in recent years. Fast-food outlets grew during the late 1960s at an annual rate of 50 per cent. In late 1969 a slowdown set in, but the indus- try still expects to expand about 27 per cent this year. Most of these outlets are oper- ated on the franchise system and about two-thirds are con- tolled by 14 companies, all but two of them based in the United States. The Canadian Hotel and Res- taurant Magazine reported in its March issue that there are about chain outlets in Can- ada specializing in fast foods. The magazine estimates per capita spending on fast foods at about for a gross to the in- dustry of about million a year. LINKED PRODUCTS The franchise system played a big role in the rapid expan- sion rale. It enabled small busi- nessmen to link up with a na- tionally-known name to sell standardized products by proven methods. Franchise holders pay an ini- tial fee and a percentage of profits to the franchisers. The magazine says chicken is the most popular fast food, ac- counting for about 32 per cent of the business. Hamburgers have 29 per. cent, ice cream 23, doughnuts four, pizza and hot dogs three each. Fish and chips, pancakes and roast beef make up Uie balance.

In addition, certain cihcr obli- gations arc somelimes involved. Some demand that franchise holders use products from des- ignated distributors. This obligation prompted a legal case in Toronto, bringing the franchise system under the scrutiny of the Ontario courts for the first time in that prov- ince. In his decision, Mr. Justice John Stark of the Ontario Su- preme Court ordered Mister Donut Ltd. to return secrel profits from supplier rebates to Jirna Ltd., owner of lliree Mis- ter Donut franchises in Toronto. IMPROPER PRACTICE He said the franchising com- pany's supplier rebate practice was improper. Evidence showed the franchis- ing company required franchise holders to buy most supplies from specific companies. M. A. Catzman, one of (he lawyers for Jirna, said in re- searching the case they found no case law directly concerning the franchiser-franchisee rela- tionship. The Ontario government has begun a study on the franchise system. A. li. II. Lawrence, minister of financial and com- mercial affairs, said In June a research staff had been ap- poinlcd and a suldy committea was planned. Former Student Found Guilty ANN ARBOR, Mich.
