What Makes You a “Good” Candidate for a Franchise?

Aug 17, 2023 - Blog by |

As a prospective franchisee, you want to put your best foot forward. Once you do your preliminary research and decide on the franchise concept you want to pursue, you want to make sure you give yourself the best chance possible to move forward with an acquisition. While some franchisors are desperate for franchisees, these probably aren’t the franchisors you want to consider (at least not without being very careful).

10 Tips for Preparing to Arbitrate a Dispute with Your Franchisor

May 24, 2023 - Blog by |

Arbitration is an alternative dispute resolution (ADR) process that is designed to be neutral while also being less expensive and less time-consuming than litigation. While the arbitration process achieves these goals in most cases, it is important to put the neutrality, cost and duration of arbitration into context.
