What is Involved in a Franchise Agreement?
A franchise agreement is a detailed, legally binding document between you (the franchisee) and the franchisor. Because of the significance of this document and its complicated nature, it is advised to consult an attorney. Among many other topics, the document is going to outline:
- The location you will operate in
- How you’re expected to run your franchise
- The duration of the agreement
- All fees involved
- Trademark/patent/signage permissions
- Cancellation policies and renewal rights
