Description

"How Much Money Can I Make with Your Franchise Brand?" The New Rules on What You Can Say ----

The FTC permits a franchisor to disclose financial results in Item 19 of a franchise disclosure document (FDD) as long as the franchisor has "a reasonable basis" for the representation.

But, if the State Regulators have their way, many franchisors are in for a big shock.

"For example, if a franchisor provides average monthly sales information in its FPR, the franchisor would need to add the highest and lowest monthly outlet sales in the sample set."

This matters to you, your franchise brand, and how you sell franchises.

You need to stay up to date on these changes.

So, come to CAFA on Tuesday, September 19th to find out which of your franchise selling practices will be affected by these new rules & what you can do to prepare for these changes.
