Federal Franchise Law
A Franchisor cannot offer or sale a franchised business in the United States or its territories without first preparing a complete Franchise Disclosure Document (“FDD”) in compliance with federal law. Some states impose additional requirements for franchisors to follow before offering franchises in their specific state. This state-level process is referred to as franchise registration, or in some cases, franchise filing. We provide a 10,000 foot overview of federal franchise law.
