How to Get Out Of a Franchise Agreement

At some point in time one will need to get out of a franchise agreement.

There are a few basic things to remember to ensure that the process turns out as flawless and hassle free as possible.

True franchising is a quick and easy option for entrepreneurs interested in starting their own businesses. However there will always arise a better opportunity for franchise owners which will lead them to wanting to get out of their original franchise agreement. These opportunities may not always be for the best but nonetheless the process for which one has to undergo to get out of a franchise agreement must be taken into consideration and given proper attention to ensure that everything is in order. One would not want to remain bound to some legal issues in the end as this is what everyone is trying to avoid when getting out of a franchise agreement.

Always bear in mind that one must exit the franchise agreement as gracefully as possible. Start with the basics, review the franchise agreement you have set up with the franchiser. This is best done with some legal help and consultation with a lawyer is a good option to ensure that everything is taken into account. Take note of the factors that have led you to want to get out of your franchise agreement. Various franchise owners have their own specific reasons for wanting to end a franchise deal and these are things that you must take into account and list down accordingly. Since this is a strict legal matter you will want to state your case and supply the necessary evidence pertaining to your claims. Dissolution of a franchise deal takes up a lot of time and money and some franchises may offer you buyout clauses but this is not always the case. Most of the time the franchisers will want to make amends and reconcile through arbitration. Reselling may also be an option though it will not be as valuable as its original market value. At this point it is important to have decided upon what you really want to do with the franchise. Some issues may be settled in this review alone while others may not and the dissolution of contract may still be in your plans. Nonetheless it is important to review first with your own legal counsel and then discuss matter with the franchisers.

Once you have made up your mind on what you really want to do, take note also of the conditions which led you to want to get out of the franchise agreement. Many franchisees have their own various reasons for wanting to leave a deal and these include wanting to declare bankruptcy, damage of the brand name, defrauding of the company and other issues pertaining to the brand value as well as its revenue value. From there the franchiser may either default on the franchise contract and an agreement of disclaimer and discretion may be discussed upon.
