Before you purchase a franchise, the law requires that you be given a Franchise Disclosure Document spelling out your costs and obligations, as well as detailed information about the franchise company.

FDDs can be difficult to understand and are sometimes hundreds of pages long.

With our review of your FDD, you'll get a customized summary explaining the obligations, costs, benefits and any other terms or conditions contained in the document you should be aware of.

Common questions

What is a Franchise Disclosure Document (FDD)?
A Franchise Disclosure Document is a legal document that is presented to prospective buyers of franchises in the presale disclosure process. It's intended to give the potential franchisee enough information to make an educated decision about their investment. However, it's often lengthy and full of legal jargon and can be difficult to understand.
What is the maximum number of pages that can be reviewed by my attorney?
Normally, the legal document review benefit that comes with legal plan membership only covers 10 pages. Franchise Disclosure Documents can run from 100 to over 300 pages in length. We've negotiated with the participating law firm a special flat fee for Business Advantage Pro members regardless of the number of pages.
What's included in the Franchise Disclosure Document review with the attorney?
You'll receive a 30-minute introductory phone consultation with an attorney to discuss your goals, objectives and concerns. The attorney will review the document privately and write up a customized summary explaining the obligations, costs, benefits and any other terms or conditions contained in the document that you should be aware of. The attorney will go over this document with you in a 30-minute follow-up phone call during which you can ask questions and seek guidance.
