Often offering low initial franchise fees and initial investment costs, cleaning franchises are popular choices for many individuals seeking to go into business for themselves. Unfortunately, cleaning franchises can present a variety of risks for unwary entrepreneurs, and royalties, marketing fund contributions and mandatory product purchases can quickly eat away at the profits of an otherwise successful business.
As a result, individuals considering cleaning franchise opportunities must go into the business with their eyes wide open, and franchisees who run into issues with their franchisors must often act quickly to protect their rights. With more than 30 years in the franchise industry, attorney Jeffrey M. Goldstein provides experienced representation for new and existing cleaning franchisees nationwide.
Are You Thinking about Buying a Cleaning Franchise?
If you are thinking about buying a cleaning franchise, there are several important issues you should address before you sign a franchise agreement. Franchising involves a unique business relationship that affords the franchisor broad rights while binding the franchisee to substantial long-term obligations, and franchisees must go into the relationship fully aware of what they can (and cannot) expect over the years to come.
For individuals considering cleaning franchises, the Goldstein Law Firm offers three flat-fee service programs designed to help uncover the hidden risks in their franchise agreements. Our top-tier service program also includes negotiating key terms of the franchise agreement with your franchisor. We can assist you with franchise due diligence as well, and we will be happy to answer any questions you may have about your franchise opportunity.
Are You Facing Termination or in a Dispute with Your Franchisor?
Attorney Jeffrey M. Goldstein also regularly represents franchisees in disputes with their franchisors. The Goldstein Law Firm is only one of four law firms to exclusively represent franchisees and dealers on a nationwide basis, and Mr. Goldstein uses his decades of experience to pursue proven and cost-effective strategies for protecting his clients’ rights. The firm’s franchise litigation and dispute resolution practice includes representing franchisees in matters such as:
- Disputes regarding renewal and transfer of franchise rights
- Franchisee and franchisor breaches of the franchise agreement
- Unfair franchise practices and violations of state franchise laws
- Violations of exclusive and protected territory rights (franchise encroachment)
- Wrongful termination of cleaning franchise agreements
When facing a dispute with your franchisor, one of the first issues to address is what your franchise agreement says about dispute resolution. Are you required to file for mediation or arbitration? Will your claim be deemed “waived” if you do not assert it in time? These are key questions that you must answer as soon as possible in order to protect your rights.
