Are you in Kellyville and considering opening your very own franchise outlet as part of a popular Australian franchise system? As with any other business, opening up a new franchise business is an exhilarating experience. However, even if you’re opening an established store such as a Boost, this arrangement is not immune from long term legal risks.
The main legal risk we talk about is the risk of agreeing to unfavourable terms in the Franchise Agreement and/or Disclosure Document. These legal documents are typically drafted by solicitor of the Franchisor. As the “Spar Licensing Case” in 2012 demonstrates, these documents may not include everything that the franchisor has promised. It is therefore extremely naive for franchisees to simply assume that the these legal documents will naturally reflect their interests. Along with conducting due diligence, it’s important for a franchisee to get these documents reviewed by a franchise lawyer.
