Learn the Legal Difference between Licensing and Franchising

There's a fine line between licensing and franchising. A franchise program requires:

  1. The payment of a franchise fee
  2. The grant of a license to use the franchise brand name and propriety information
  3. A specific business format that makes the franchise unique
A license only requires two of these three elements, and a Franchise Disclosure Document (FDD) is not needed for the sale of a license Since getting a license can be simpler than franchising, some business owners will use this format. Unfortunately, it is easy to unknowingly slip into the franchise model, which has legal repercussions that can expose you to financial liability. Help prevent yourself from being an "involuntary franchisor" in this situation by seeking counsel from Jeffrey Frankel. He'll help you plan your next business moves carefully.
