Franchise Disclosure Documents (FDD)

One of the most difficult things to impress upon start-up franchisors is the amount of time, resources, and manpower it takes to establish a uniform system and, equally important, to monitor compliance with that system.

2009 continued to be a year in which courts found that by providing earnings information in an Item 19 franchisors were able to prevail in cases in which the franchisee asserted claims for fraud surrounding alleged misleading earnings claims. Due to the length of time it takes a case to arise and percolate through the court system, each of these cases involves franchisees who received disclosure under the prior UFOC Guidelines. However, as the cases all relate to a franchisee's ability to rely on the earnings information there is no reason to believe the result would differ under the FDD format.

Consumers have an infinite number of ways and places to talk about your brand. Social media platforms such as Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, online blogs, podcasts and YouTube are fundamentally changing the way we work and interact with each other, with an increasing blurring of business, commercial, social and personal communications. As a result, these social media platforms can provide beneficial (and inexpensive) ways for franchisors and franchisees to market and promote their products and services.
