The relationship between a franchisor and franchisee is governed by an agreement between the parties. When Florida automobile dealers wish to open their own franchise, they may work with auto makers or other entities to set the parameters for what they may do and how they may sell vehicles under the franchisor’s name. When disputes arise between the parties, the information contained in their agreement may be controlling.
A franchise owner may put their whole life and financial savings into opening their own business, and a conflict with their franchisor may jeopardize not only the health of their business but also their financial future. For this reason, it is important for franchisees to seek legal support when they find themselves embroiled in disputes with their franchisors.
