A Recent Case, An Important Message To Business Owners
Attorney Rybicki recently represented a Philadelphia client who opened a second location of an existing business. The agreement that the client signed gave him permission to use the business name and identity, outlining certain rules to follow. The agreement also stated that it was not a franchise agreement – despite looking like one. The client was held to the state’s standards of a franchise but was not provided with the franchise disclosure document (FDD) necessary to franchisees.
In arbitration, it was found that the agreement was a franchise agreement after all – despite the language to the contrary. The necessary franchise disclosures should have been provided to the firm’s client. Because they were not, the client was not responsible for losses incurred when the business encountered trouble.
This is an important lesson to business leaders everywhere. If you are organizing the expansion of your business, just saying that it is not a franchise is not enough. If you are organizing your business like a franchise, you must proactively provide the necessary disclosures to potential franchisees.
