This checklist will help you think about the information you should obtain before entering into a franchise agreement. Find out as much information as you can about the franchise. Read all documents and agreements carefully, and do not sign anything without understanding it first. You may adapt the tool to reflect your business needs, type of clientele, products and services you offer. Seek independent advice from a lawyer, accountant or business adviser who has experience in franchising.
