What You Get
What is a Franchise Agreement?
A Franchise Agreement is a contract between a franchisor and a franchisee. The contract gives the franchisee the right to operate a business according to the same system or marketing plan determined by the franchisor. Franchising is a risky business, so it’s extremely important to have professionally prepared documents which provide you with adequate protection.
