If somebody takes the franchise of a company then they get the right to do business "

If somebody takes the franchise of a company then they get the right to do business "in" or "under" the name of that company. For example there are a lot of Mc Donald's (can we call Mc Donald's a company?) stores all around the world but those all are not real ones. Real one is in the USA only and others are franchised stores.

Could you please check my sentences?

Note that most McDonald's stores are franchises everywhere in the world. They are all real McDonald's stores. The franchise agreement requires each owner to follow procedures and meet standards imposed by the McDonald's corporation.

"Meat standards," too. :-D

The distinction between "company-owned" and "franchise" is not one of being "real" or not. The entire concept of franchising is that the business is run the same way regardless of the ownership.

I would call it specifically a "fast food restaurant". The word "restaurant" on its own suggests a somewhat more refined dining experience than that offered by a burger bar!

McDonald's locations are indeed called "stores". So are the locations of the industrial franchise company that I work for. It may be a term commonly used in franchising, but I don't really know.

Internal to the company, the individual restaurants are indeed referred to as "stores," but normal people don't call them that. Not only McDonald's, but other chain restaurants are the same, in my experience.
