The franchise market offers many solid, low-risk business opportunities; however the cases of fraud and abuse far outnumber the success stories. This study, written by an expert in franchise law, examines how and why franchises are often rigged for failure. It covers the hidden contract provisions and other crucial facts that every franchisee should know, including: how to protect yourself against fraud; your legal rights; what to look for and what questions to ask; how to identify contract provisions that could ruin your chances for success; and how to spot and take full advantage of legitimate opportunities.
