* ''{{Traveller}}'': Several really. But an interesting example is the Oberlindes family which brought itself from being a group of [[IntrepidMerchant Free Traders]] to near MegaCorp status. They still have something of a [[BadassFamily style]] to the way they do business.

[[folder: Theater]]* In ''Theatre/AllMySons'', Joe Keller put forty years of his life into building up a business which he badly wants his son Chris to inherit.

* [=McDonald's=] was once actually run by a real family, the [=McDonald=] brothers. They invented the very concept of "fast food" via automatic mechanical cookers and ran the franchise for about 20 years until they partnered up with [[CorruptCorporateExecutive Ray Kroc]], who [[EvilPlan rewrote all of the signed agreements and took the company over in a hostile takeover]], literally leaving the brothers [[ShaggyDogStory sitting in the desert cooking burgers for random yokels]] and eternally trying to recapture their GloryDays.

* [[{{Universal}} Universal Pictures]] was this when it was established in 1912 by Carl Laemmle. He named his namesake son president of the studio as a 21st birthday present and he helped the studio transition to sound and color. The Laemmles sold the studio in 1936. * Creator/StellanSkarsgard is a very famous Swedish actor, appearing in films such as ''GoodWillHunting'', ''Film/TheAvengers'', ''Film/MammaMia'' and ''PiratesOfTheCaribbean''. He has eight children, seven of whom (His oldest son [[Creator/AlexanderSkarsgard Alexander]] being most famous in the U.S.) have had reasonably successful acting or modeling careers. The one who hasn't? Well, his youngest son, Ossian, is three. * The Keslensky webcomics are this with a twist -- Rachel began Webcomic/LastRes0rt a few years before her father J.P. started BugPudding, rather than the other way around.

* Several of the major characters in ''Manga/ShokugekiNoSoma'' have come to Tootsuki from family-run restaurants to hone their skills. ** Soma has run the blue-plate diner ''Yukihira'' with his dad for years, and has no ambitions beyond graduating and taking over. ** Megumi's family run a ''ryokan'' somewhere in Tohoku, and Megumi began to cook to help in the business. ** The Aldini brothers are the heirs to a ''trattoria'' somewhere in Tuscany. ** Houjou Miyoko's family run a Chinese restaurant. ** The Nakiri family are a gastronomic powerhouse, with Senzaemon acting as chairman of the Tootsuki group and headmaster of the school, Leonora running the Tootsuki group's R&D-division, and Alice and Erina doing their (very impressive) best to follow in Leonora's and Senaemon's footsteps, respectively. ** Arato Hisako has also joined the family business, albeit in a roundabout way. The Arato family have been the Nakiri family's personal physicians for generations, but Hisako chose to work as Erina's aide and let her family's knowledge of medicinal herbs form the foundation of her cooking.
