Relationship with owner

IHG franchise revenue has three levers to drive future growth. Some of the factors that influence these levers are under our direct control, like rooms' growth, and others are influenced by market forces, such as the performance of our brands relative to competitors' brands.

The franchise contract is generally a standard contract, with some variation across the world. A sample contract would have a royalty fee of 5% of rooms' revenue. However this also varies across brands and countries.
