Franchise Agreements

Franchise agreements are the key documents for franchising. They are typically very complex and contain the necessary terms, conditions and restrictions set by the franchisor which the franchisee is required to follow. Franchise agreements must be carefully drafted for a franchisor or carefully reviewed and explained for a franchisee.

Franchise agreements usually accompany a trademark license with detailed marketing plans, operating standards, uniforms, attire, hours of operations, quality controls, and several other conditions. These conditions are imposed to create uniformity between the individual franchises.
