Franchising Your Business:
Tuesday June 20
11 a.m. – 11:45
Presented by Brian Gregg, and Mike Doctrow, attorneys, McNees Wallace and Nurick
Franchising provides an attractive platform for rapidly growing your business footprint without needing all of the capital to do it yourself. A successful franchise requires a proven, reproducible, system and a staff that can focus on sales, consistency, and branding.
All of this can be a recipe for success, but franchising is highly regulated at both the state and federal level and franchisors must make sure that they have proper disclosure documents and have cleared all of the regulatory hurdles before offering a franchise opportunity to a prospect.
This webinar will discuss the business considerations one should make before franchising, how a franchise is defined, the framework of state and federal laws that apply to franchises, how to select and protect trademarks, key terms of a franchise agreement and some alternatives to franchising.
