Resumen

Esta investigación evalúa el nivel de actividades de responsabilidad social empresarial (RSE) mediante el uso de 26 indicadores agrupados en las dimensiones: medio ambiente, sociedad, gobernanza corporativa y productos y servicios. A partir de un análisis de los websites de 401 franquicias que actualmente operan en México, se encontró que solamente el 22.9 % comunica sus actividades de RSE. El planteamiento de las hipótesis combinó la teoría basada en recursos, la teoría de los stakeholders y la teoría de la agencia. Los resultados de la regresión indican que la edad de la franquicia y el porcentaje de unidades franquiciadas en la cadena influyen negativamente en el nivel de actividades de RSE, mientras que el tamaño y la cuota de entrada influyen positivamente en el nivel de estas misma actividades.
