Protect Local Businesses
Right now, the state of Florida provides NO protections for small businessmen and businesswomen who choose to invest their hard-earned personal resources in a franchise business opportunity. We need the Florida Legislature to enact basic protections for those who invest their personal time, money, and energy to build local businesses that employ over 400,000 people in our state.
Establish Commonsense Protections
The Florida Legislature has the opportunity to pass fair legislation that evens the playing field for small business owners across the state. These policies would ensure basics for local businesses that are owned and operated by franchisees, including protections from unjust terminations and non-renewal of their agreements.
Support Florida Jobs
Florida must allow entrepreneurs to operate under franchise agreements and run their small businesses with the peace of mind that their livelihoods cannot be taken away without ample notice or fair compensation. This will provide balance to the franchise relationship so that both parties can grow and create jobs in Florida.
