Guest editorial: Family business in tourism and hospitality

Guest editorial: Family business in tourism and hospitality Guest editorial Guest editorial: Family business in tourism and hospitality Introduction In the tourism and hospitality industry (THI), most enterprises are characterized by small size and family ownership (Getz and Carlsen, 2000, 2005; Cunningham and Seaman, 2022; Valeri, 2022; Valeri and Katsoni, 2021). Between the family and the firm, an exclusive entrepreneurial culture develops (Astrachan, 2003; Peters and Kallmuenzer, 2018), potentially making transgenerational entrepreneurship the main economic engine in the tourism industry (Puzi and Ismail, 2017). Influenced by the family conflicts, local culture and commercial interests, the management of this type of business involving family members has become increasingly more complex over the years (Ismail et al., 2019).

Abstract

Guest editorial Guest editorial: Family business in tourism and hospitality Introduction In the tourism and hospitality industry (THI), most enterprises are characterized by small size and family ownership (Getz and Carlsen, 2000, 2005; Cunningham and Seaman, 2022; Valeri, 2022; Valeri and Katsoni, 2021). Between the family and the firm, an exclusive entrepreneurial culture develops (Astrachan, 2003; Peters and Kallmuenzer, 2018), potentially making transgenerational entrepreneurship the main economic engine in the tourism industry (Puzi and Ismail, 2017). Influenced by the family conflicts, local culture and commercial interests, the management of this type of business involving family members has become increasingly more complex over the years (Ismail et al., 2019). This highlights that the development of a family business (FB) is influenced by three factors: the family, property and the business system adopted (Gersick et al., 1997; Peters and Buhalis, 2004).
