Franchise Alert: It’s renewal time!

Many states require a review of a franchisor’s franchise offering materials prior to offering the sale of a franchise opportunity within the state. These prohibitions apply in the following states: California, Hawaii, Illinois, Indiana, Maryland, Minnesota, New York, North Dakota, Rhode Island, South Dakota, Virginia, Washington, and Wisconsin. In addition, both Michigan and Oregon require franchisors to register, but do not require the filing and approval of franchise offering materials.
