One corporation may run or include any number of businesses. They can all be under the corporation's name; or each a part of that corporation, but under separate D/B/A's (that is, each "doing busines as" under a different name); or they can be under subsidiary LLCs or corporations owned by the main corporation--you can set it up however you like. If you questions about what best meets your needs, consult with a business attorney.
