The Franchise Disclosure Document is a legal requirement mandated by law in the United States. In it are 23 separate articles that tell the prospective franchisee all about the franchise opportunity they wish to purchase. Each article deals with a separate topic, but together this document tells the story and you want to read this. The problem is that most people cannot weave their way through such a complex document and this is another call for a qualified Franchise Broker. Someone with experience can spend the necessary time to walk you through the document, explaining the content so that you have a good understanding of what to expect. As I stated, each article is important, however, Article 19 deals with the finances of the franchise and may require special attention discerning the numbers to see if they make sense to invest and align with.
