A Franchize Agreement is a document created between two parties. The first party will be franchising out their already well-developed business model (the franchisor), and the second party will agree to specific terms and conditions to establish their own franchised business based on a previous business model. This document is also known as A Franchise Business Agreement. In this document, the franchisor states their requirements and wishes to the franchisee to operate the business under their trademark. It can be any business.
In the agreement, the franchisor and the franchisee include their expectations and describe details of the relationship. Typically, the franchisor describes the rules to be followed by the franchisee and provides certain information related to the franchisee's protection.
The franchise business description, quality control standards, and payments that the franchisee will have to make must also be specified. We advise including a clause about failures and how they should be addressed.

The parties shall include their identifying information, whether they are individuals or businesses, and contact information.

A completed document should be printed and signed by both parties. We recommend keeping copies in case any future disputes arise.
In the US, both specific-state and federal laws govern Franchise Agreements. The Franchise Rule covers specific disclosures that are required to be made to the franchisee before the franchisee signs the contract. There are several states which mandate The Franchise Rule, requiring notice, filing or registration of a franchisor's disclosure document, called a Franchise Disclosure Document. Those states are California, Connecticut, Florida, Hawaii, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Maine, Maryland, Michigan, Minnesota, Nebraska, New York, North Carolina, North Dakota, Rhode Island, Virginia, Washington, Wisconsin, Oregon, South Carolina, South Dakota, Texas, and Utah.
