Franchise arrangements can be complex to negotiate, as miscommunication, failure to deliver on contractually agreed positions and unilateral decisions can lead to disputes. Whether you are the franchisor or the franchisee it is important to consult with professional legal counsel before taking actions which could lead to a damaging outcome. In the franchise system, the franchisor makes most of the decisions concerning the brand itself and may be tempted to make big decisions for the individual franchisee. However, the individual franchisee may have greater insight into their local area, and may have their own views on how to increase their market share and grow their unit. Having clear division of responsibilities outlined in the franchise agreement is vital to prevent confusion and disputes in such matters.
