Burzych to Facilitate a Business Roundtable at the International Franchise Association Annual Convention

On February 14, 2012, Mark Burzych will facilitate a “Business Roundtable” at the International Franchise Association's Annual Convention in Orlando, Florida.  Mark will facilitate a discussion among franchisors and IFA suppliers on the topic of franchise laws and “Disclosure Issues Related to Promotional Franchise Sales Incentive Programs.”  The group will discuss business, legal, and regulatory issues related to a franchisor's franchise sales incentive programs, such as initial franchise fee abatements, royalty fee abatements, deferred payment options, and other programs that are used as incentives for franchisees to purchase franchises.   All of these programs come with business, legal, and regulatory risks, which will be the focus of the roundtable discussion.
