Frequently Asked Questions About Franchise Law
Here are some of the frequently asked questions about franchise law to provide you with more information:
- What is franchising? It is the granting of various rights by one party (the franchisor) to another (the franchisee), which are sufficient to enable the franchisee to develop and operate a "clone" of the franchisor's business concept in return for payments to the franchisor.
- Do franchisors have a duty to provide support to their franchisees? On paper, franchisors have this duty to some degree. Most franchise agreements explicitly set forth the respective duties owed by both the franchisors and franchisees.
- Do I need a license to become a franchisee? There is no specific license required to become a franchisee. However, some franchise systems may perform tasks or duties, which in themselves require special licenses or permits.
