Manufacturer guidelines can help resolve franchise disputes

Few industries embody the American Dream more than car sales. Sometimes all you need to succeed in it is the drive to create comfort for motorists and the right opportunity to relate to a market. But a lot of people may share this dream, and that can lead to conflicts.

The Florida Franchise Act guards against dealership fraud

Have you ever heard a business idea that was too good to be true? Some of them may be like a surprise investment not on offer to many other people, but smart businesspeople often conclude something that is too good to be true probably isn't true at all.

Help with auto dealership concerns

This blog recently discussed what a franchise is and it is equally important for franchisees and auto dealers to understand what a franchise is as to also understand how the legal process can help them with concerns related to their business and auto dealership. The success of an auto dealership may depend, at least in part, on understanding the legal basics of running an auto dealership and how the legal process can help with any challenges that may pop up.

What is a franchise?

For any entrepreneur looking at opening a franchise, such as an automotive franchise, it is important to understand the basics of a franchise and have all of the information concerning a franchise in order. At their most basic level, franchises are used to distribute goods and products such as automobiles.

Product liability and car sales

Auto dealership group accused of false advertising

The auto dealership business can be tough in Florida. Overhead costs are high, profit margins can be slim, and there is a heavy burden of regulatory compliance issues. One area where auto dealers can run into trouble is with advertising.

Franchisors may control some aspects of franchisees' businesses

Although opening a franchise business in Florida can be a lucrative and exciting investment, it can also be a difficult undertaking if the business owner is not aware of the control they may need to give up concerning the details of their franchise relationship. A franchise, regardless of its industry, may be set up in such a way that every business under the franchise looks the same, operates the same, and pays the same costs to the franchisor. It is important to understand some of the ways that franchisors may structure the operation of franchises, but our readers are reminded that different franchise relationships may vary.
