Covid-19 Help for Franchisees

Posted by Elizabeth Gore-Jones on 23 March 2020

Covid-19 is causing confusion and panic amongst franchisees who may not be able to operate their franchised business or who are suffering a significant downturn in trade.

Franchisees may have legal rights that protect their interests or at least give them some bargaining power to negotiate a deal to see them to the end of this pandemic.

For instance, your franchise agreement may be frustrated because the parties can no longer perform their obligations under the franchise agreement.

We want to help franchisees who may have nowhere to turn for advice.

For a one off greatly reduced price of $375 plus GST, we will review your franchise agreement, give you verbal advice about your rights and prepare a letter to be sent to your franchisor with the aim of negotiating a better outcome.

*limited numbers apply as we may not have capacity to help everyone

*this offer may be withdrawn at any time
