If you’re considering buying a Samurai Sam’s® restaurant franchise, or any franchise for that matter, you will need to be able to understand your franchisor contract. Most franchise agreements contain numerous provisions that will directly affect how you will be running your business. Because buying a franchise is a major investment, you should consult with an experienced business law attorney.
The Value of Having a Business Law Attorney
It’s probably worth the cost to have a business law attorney review your franchisor contract with you. He or she can explain to you the various provisions, including what you can or cannot do according to your contract. This will help you remain in compliance with your contract and not in breach of your contract.
Your attorney can also help you:
- Negotiate terms and conditions of your franchise agreement
- Deal with changes and updates to your agreement, such as royalty fees
- Confront the possibility of the parent company selling your franchise because of low sales
Buying a Samurai Sam’s franchise is normally a painless process, but it’s always a good idea to consult with your business attorney before signing your contract to avoid any misunderstandings.
