Data for validation were collected by means of a questionnaire distributed to foodservice franchisees in Shanghai and Xiamen, China respectively, and analyzed through confirmatory factor analysis. The findings showed that the proposed measurement scale is applicable across the two regions with acceptable model fit indices. In addition, this study examined the differences of franchisees’ perception on support provided by franchisors in Taiwan and China. The findings in this research not only advanced scholarly understanding and theory in franchising but also provided useful insight for foodservice stakeholders seeking to expand their market by franchising in these two regions.
