As a franchisee, you generally have the benefit of certainty of an established and proven business method.
As a franchisor, your interest is to leverage your business system and intellectual property through franchising.
A harmonious franchisor-franchisee relationship is what helps your business to be profitable. That is why you need an agreement that protects the franchisor and franchisee against risk, is compliant with the regulatory regime, and allows you to gain maximum benefit from the business model.
Whether you are a franchisor or franchisee, it is essential that you understand the terms you are agreeing on, and make sure you have them drafted properly. Otherwise, the risks are too high.
