This paper studies the effect of intra-firm branch competition in a monopoly setting. It demonstrates that intra-firm branch competition has significant impact on the firm's operation decisions, and consequently on market outcome. In particular, under certain conditions, a branch-competitive monopoly supplies higher quality at the same or lower price than a corresponding pure monopoly.
