This is a toughy, but I'm looking for a word that doesn't have the connotations of "enterprise," "corporate" or "national account." Something that will get the idea of multi-unit businesses across in a simple, pleasant way (doesn't necessarily have to be a single word.)

Appreciate any input!

I think that :

Service and/or productive activity

may convey the idea of a multi- unit business without the connotation of a corporation.

  • Activity
  • Collaboration
  • Collaborative effort
  • Cooperative
  • Initiative
  • Partnering organizations
