- Are there any laws governing small business franchise sales?
Yes. After your application is approved, the franchisor is required by law to provide you with a Uniform Franchise Offering Circular (UFOC). This document provides information about the franchisor, the franchise system, and details of every aspect of the investment. The UFOC is a wealth of knowledge and provides you with valuable information to make the right business decision.
- Is there financing available for small business franchises?
Yes. The franchisors will often assist you in securing financing. The most common government backed loans are through the Small Business Administration (SBA) and Department of Veteran Affairs (VA). Typically, these loans require 20% down and will finance the remaining fees.
