Some of the modern-day franchise companies have extensive training in teach people every single aspect to the business and some of these companies are not very simple and therefore neither is the training.In our franchising company we had a simple concept, which was easy to train. Each franchise or is required to disclose in the disclosure documents and franchise agreement the amount of training which will be given in required to pass. This allows the franchise buyer a chance to understand what all is involved with the time commitment for the training program. Below is a clause in our franchise agreements, which will help you better understand this concept;.
1 Initial Training.A forty (40) hour initial training course is provided with the Franchised Business. Franchisee will be allowed to have up to three people including themselves take this course. This initial training course is required and anyone who will be operating Franchisee's initial car wash truck/unit unsupervised is required to complete the training. At least one person is required to take the training course.
This initial training course will be held at locations Franchisor designates in the United States and will be run by a US based franchisee.----------- ------------.Since all franchisors must disclose the initial training requirements it makes sense to have improperly worded in the franchising agreements and thus all franchising companies should consult with legal counsel and a knowledgeable franchising attorney to protect them legally from lawsuits stemming from ambiguity.
