Franchises


OVERVIEW

      Our practice in the area of franchises is generally divided into two (2) areas:
 
      First, we advise persons who are considering purchasing an existing franchise location from the current owner/operator, or those persons who are considering investing in a new franchise that is being offered by the franchise parent as a new business opportunity.  Typically this involves reviewing the “Uniform Offering Circular” (sometimes called the “UFOC”, or sometimes referred to as the “FTC Disclosures”).  This is a lengthy document that the franchise parent is required by law to provide to each prospective franchisee. 
This is a long, thick document; we have seen some that are as thick as the Orange Park phonebook.
 

      Since we have reviewed many, many of these documents for clients, we are well prepared to review your proposed documents, detail by detail, and give you meaningful input.  Unless one has reviewed many, many of these documents, in order to develop a frame of reference, it is very difficult to differentiate between the good franchise opportunities and the not so good offerings.
 

      Second, we have many current franchise clients, and they represent virtually every major franchise parent.  Since they are already successful franchisees, our continuing service to them is comprised of the advice, assistance and problem solving necessary for them to continue to be a successful business.
 

      Finally, there are three (3) “measuring sticks” for all franchise opportunities.  There are the three (3) basic tenets that we use to separate the good from the bad franchise opportunities.  They are:
 
           (i)   REPLICABILITY
           (ii)  PUBLIC DOMAIN
          (iii)  BRAND AWARENESS 

We would be pleased and honored to help you
analyze the franchise opportunity you
are considering.
