Taking on a franchise is a legally binding agreement. Get it wrong and it could be a costly financial decision. Before entering a franchise agreement you need to carry out proper and thorough research – with expert legal advice. What are you actually buying the rights to? How much will it cost in fees to the franchisor? Are there any restrictions on trade? What are the costs of supplies? And importantly how do you check projections and cash flow figures? And if things aren’t quite working as you hoped for, what are the conditions if you want to leave early or if the franchisor ceases to trade?
