Drafting Franchise Agreements

 

A well drafted franchise agreement will:

  • be in as plain language as possible;
  • reflect your business systems and structure;
  • comply with the provisions of the Franchising Code of Conduct;
  • set out the commercial terms between the parties (such as the fees to be paid);
  • protect the value of the brand and intellectual property (including online);
  • be consistent with the disclosure document;
  • not contain terms that are unfair or unconscionable;
  • anticipate changes within the franchise system over the term of the franchise agreement.

We have developed and drafted hundreds of customised franchise agreements. We do not use generic templates. 

We understand franchising, which enables us to draft franchise agreements which reflect and support your business structure and goals both now and in the future and which protect your interests.

What terms are usually in a franchise agreement?

 

Under the terms of a franchise agreement a franchisee is usually granted the right to use your name, trade mark and system, within a certain defined territory (or site) for a certain period.

In addition the franchise agreement will contain provisions protecting  your business interests and your intellectual property.

The franchise agreement will also set out the franchisee's obligations such as:

  • the goods or services which may be provided;
  • the fees to be paid;
  • the manuals to be followed;
  • the standards to be maintained; and
  • the way that the business is to be promoted.
