family owned \ family run

< Previous | Next >
"The family owned, intimate resort includes all five stars, luxury lodges, a delightful café, deli-shop and a function suite."

My problem is that I really don't know if there's a difference between "family owned" and "family run", can you help me?

    Family run means that the family are there running the business themselves (and it implies that it is their business)
    Family owned simply means that it is owned by a family, but anyone could then be employed to run the business
