Franchise Termination based on franchise menu price fixing


Franchise termination based on franchisee's refusal to fix franchise menu prices approved by court for franchisee's refusal to fix menu prices as ordered by the franchisor. The court decision also stated the record amply demonstrated that the franchisees were well aware that their actions were in contravention of the franchise agreement, and thus were committed "knowingly" for purposes of the termination. With regard to the franchisees' counterclaim for fraud, the court agreed with Steak 'n Shake that the claim failed as a matter of law because the franchise agreement contained an integration clause that preempted any claim based on statements made prior to the agreement.
