Relevant Aspects of the Franchise Contract

Franchise contracts are complex documents that cover several critical aspects for the success of the relationship between franchisor and franchisee.

PRECONTRACTUAL INFORMATION DOCUMENT

This document is crucial as it provides potential franchisees with essential information about the franchise, including financial, historical, and legal data. It helps the franchisee to make an informed decision before signing the contract.

DETERMINATION OF RIGHTS GRANTED TO THE FRANCHISEE

The contract must clearly specify which rights are granted to the franchisee, such as the use of the brand, operating systems, and access to knowledge and technologies.

DURATION OF THE FRANCHISE TERM

These clauses define the geographic limits within which the franchisee can operate and establish restrictions on direct competition with other franchises of the same brand.

FRANCHISEE TRAINING

The contract must include details about the training that the franchisee will receive, covering everything from product or service knowledge to business management.

OPERATIONAL PROCEDURES

The contract must describe the standard operating procedures that the franchisee must follow to maintain brand consistency and quality.

ENTRY AND PERIODIC FEES AND ROYALTIES
