Franchising is already recognized as an alternative of building and creating chain stores of restaurants to distribute goods, services and products which avoids any liability and investment of a chain, and it is also a term used by the people as a foreign market entry code. The franchising industry believed that the franchisor’s success will be based on their franchisee’s success, which is why the franchisors are advised to purchase the franchising opportunity provided by well-known restaurants. A contract that is legal and bounded between the franchisee and the franchisor is basically called as the franchise agreement, and the common contents of such contract may be based on the state jurisdiction of the franchisor, the franchise system of their local state, the franchisee, and the arbitrator.
