Abstract

Family-owned businesses are the backbone of many economies around the world. This research aims at exploring the overall contribution of the family-owned supermarkets to the economic development of Spain. The secondary data has been used throughout this research paper to meet this objective. For this reason, we systematically examine previous research on these topics of family business. The findings show that there is a significant contribution of family-owned supermarkets to the economic development of Spain. Additionally, we identify future research areas that provide scholars opportunities to push theoretical boundaries and offer further insights into the family business.
