How we help current franchisees with franchise problems
Franchise consultations was created with the main objective of helping people understand the risks involved with entering into franchise agreements. While in-depth research and negotiation before a contract has been signed is always ideal, we recognize that, sometimes, it’s necessary to deal with franchise problems that arise after the investment has been paid for and the papers have been signed.
You are not powerless!
Franchise contracts generally require a commitment of at least 5 years, if not 10 or more. These long-term agreements don’t seem like a big deal until you start having issues with your franchisor. When you are 2 years into a 10 year contract, unable to turn a profit, and receiving little to no help from your franchisor, it can seem like a lost cause. Many franchisees feel trapped in an agreement and end up spending money out of their personal savings in an attempt to keep their business running and in-compliance with whatever changes the franchisor requires.
We can help!
Franchisors are quick to threaten you with repercussions or even legal action if you do not comply with all of their requirements and demands, even when those requirements don’t always match up with the same business you originally purchased. Franchisors and their corporate legal team are very good at making franchisees feel as if they have no options and leaving them feeling completely powerless. The truth is, you do have options! If you are having any franchise problems at all, do not hesitate to contact us. We will listen to your concerns and advise you on your best course of action.
Closing or selling your franchise? Protect yourself!
Closing or selling a franchise is a delicate process. It is essential that you protect yourself throughout the process so that you do not open yourself up to potential legal troubles with your franchisor and/or the buyer. This is especially important if you are closing your franchise early!
