BUSINESS PROBLEMS RESULTING FROM BUSINESS-FAMILY INTERACTIONS AND SECTORAL CHARACTERISTICS: THE CASE OF MUĞLA

Fatmagül TURANLIGİL [1] , Volkan ALTINTAŞ [2]


The interaction between the business and the family itself causes some serious problems in the family businesses. These businesses also face with other prob-lems due to the peculiar characteristics of the tourism industry. The objective of the study is to understand problems that the family businesses face in the tourism industry. Data for the study were gathered by way of a self-administered questi-onnaire with the study sample of family operated accommodation businesses lo-cated in Aegean Region (Mugla), Turkey, during the summer of 2018. Study findings evidence that owner/operators place more importance on the problems resulting from the industrial characteristics compared to problems arise from bu-siness-family interactions. The paper ends with both practical implications for the family business operators and some theoretical contribution to the growing research of family businesses.
