Helping expand your business

Franchising is an important component of the U.S. economy and a growing factor in international business.  Whether it is making the decision to franchise your business or deciding to purchase a franchised business, it is important to understand the nature of franchising and the details of the business.  When a franchise relationship is created, it is more than just a contract. A whole set of regulatory and consumer protection regulations are at play. It is a must that you understand both the legal contract and the regulations in order to understand the benefits and drawbacks of the franchise relationship.
