Since 1955, sticking to the same sector, we can add to this list such modern innovations as Ray Kroc’s fast-food franchise (better known as McDonalds), the 24-hour convenience store, home delivery of pre-cooked food, the suburban shopping mall, franchise-everything (from coffee to hairdressing), the various steps that make up the delivery business of UPS, Federal Express, and DHL, and, obviously, online commerce. That is to say: pretty much each and every innovation that, during the last half century, has had any lasting impact in the retail and distribution sector is not due to the presence of patents.
