Business meeting


As you know, the franchise industry is not really an industry. It is a regulated way of doing business and is found in 30 primary industry sectors and more than 200 sub-sectors, each with its own issues and challenges. FRANdata has the world’s largest library of current and historical UFOCs but that’s just the start of how we can be of assistance to you. Turning UFOCs and other source data into helpful information is how we can be of considerably more value to you.

FRANdata takes each UFOC and inputs hundreds of data points into our master database. We then add data from other sources. The result is an ability to turn data into information that can address your legal and business questions.

Our differentiating strength as the leading franchise information provider is the ability to look at specific issues and generate reports and analysis across franchise systems in a particular sector or across all sectors. Questions that weren’t practical to answer previously because of the time and effort involved are now commonplace for us.

It is most helpful to think of our products as examples of what we can produce rather than as inflexible reports.

In-House Counsels

As franchise systems move through natural life cycles, legal and operational issues change. What legal issues should you anticipate as your company changes? What systems have addressed issues you are confronting in creative ways? Understanding what other franchise systems are doing, how your company compares to other franchise systems, keeping track of new legal developments in various sectors, putting your system’s legal and operational issues in context and supporting decisions with fact-based analysis are just a few of the ways we can help.

Litigation Support

Having access to historical facts and figures around specific issues is a key challenge yet often a determining factor in litigation. We provide research and analytical support around specific issues.
