Protect Local Businesses
Right now, the state of Florida provides NO protections for small business operators men and businesswomen who choose to invest their hard-earned personal resourcessavings in a franchise business opportunity. We need basic protections for those men and women who invest their personal time, money, and energy to build local businesses that employ over 400,000 people in our state.
Establish Commonsense Protections
Florida needs to even the playing field for small business owners across the state by establishing commonsense protections. These basic protections are already extended to many other industries in Florida, so why has not the restaurant and service industry been left out?
