Owning one or more franchises can be lucrative. You have a business model already set, and you must manage the operations and hopefully make significant profits on an already proven restaurant or retail idea. However, franchise owners can have many legal questions and concerns along the way. If you would like to learn about how an experienced franchise lawyer can assist you, contact Randick O’Dea & Tooliatos, LLP, today.
Handling Transactions and Disputes for Franchisees
Purchasing a franchise can be a complicated matter. You must pay for the franchise rights and licenses, as well as enter into a franchise agreement with the franchisor. This agreement will have many requirements with which you must comply. You will be responsible for the operational costs, including your commercial lease, required upgrades and alterations by the franchisor, and much more. You will need all the necessary permits and licenses, and you must comply with all health and safety standards and employment laws. Having the counsel of a skilled business attorney can help with each aspect of your franchise.
To make matters more complicated, disputes can arise between franchisors and franchisees. For example, a franchisee may disagree with changes in the marketing that are costly to franchisees but do not bring in additional profits. Some franchise owners have begun to organize to present complaints to franchisors. These disputes can be complex, and you want to ensure that your interests are protected.
