The Franchise Agreement is a part of the Franchise Disclosure Document and plays off the Disclosure.
The Franchise Agreement takes all the information in the Disclosure and blows it up into much greater detail.
What is one of the biggest reasons franchisors get sued? Why use The Franchise Maker to help Franchise My Business? The Franchise Maker® will help you identify if franchising is the best vehicle of growth for you.
Do you have experience with unique franchise models? I already have my logos trademarked and registered. What do I need to bring to the table to start franchising? As a franchisor do I need to show financial stability? Franchising is simply a solution and an industry that has put thousands of businesses on the map, transforming local businesses into nationally recognized brands.
Perhaps you have identified a unique way to provide a service or you have a proprietary product offering; maybe you have hired employees only to find that once they leave you, they become your competitors and you then realize you should be charging for such knowledge; or you have thought about expanding your business into other markets, but do not want to take on the cost of opening up satellite locations.
Because you want to grow your business, take it to the next level, using the most cost effective and widely-endorsed method of expansion.
No, we are not franchise brokers and we do not market or sell any of our clients' franchise models or any other assortment of franchise opportunities.
Separating the development process from the selling process means that we don’t have any hidden agendas when working with you.
Some companies will overlap franchise development and franchise brokerage and tie in huge commissions for themselves or (here is a good one) expect equity in your business as part of their compensation (see our Learning Center article on "Franchise Brokers vs Franchise Developers").
Fact: Franchising is regulated by the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) in an effort to protect consumers (potential franchisees) against fraud.
