Franchise Research Institute® Report  Terms and Conditions

By clicking “I Agree,” you are stating that you have read, understood and agree to the following terms of service regarding the Franchise Research Institute® Report you are about to obtain.

1. The Franchise Research Institute Report
This report has been designed and assembled by working directly with franchisees in a single franchise system. Their opinions have been gathered and reported in such a manner that they cannot be individually identified, yet their voices can be heard collectively. As with any collection of information from numerous people, the Franchise Research Institute Report has limitations which must be acknowledged. This report is based entirely on information provided by the franchisee respondents, and reflects personal views and opinions. Furthermore, the list of franchisees recruited for the survey was provided to FRI by the franchisor, and it has not been otherwise verified. The information on which this report is based may become outdated with the passage of time. The report offers a “snapshot” of the collective opinions of a group of business owners at a specific point in time. Therefore, it is recommended that franchisees be re-surveyed annually.

2. Limited Use of the Franchise Research Institute Report

We retain all copyrights in this report. Only the Franchise Research Institute and the franchisor who has commissioned the study have the right to reproduce and distribute the FRI report for any given franchise opportunity. By requesting this report, you will have the right to use it for your personal use in evaluating a franchise investment. You may not reproduce, publish, or re-sell any FRI report without the written permission of The Franchise Research Institute. If you seek permission to reproduce a FRI report, please contact Jeff Johnson at jeff@franchiseresearchinstitute.com.

3. Franchise Investment

You acknowledge that purchasing a franchised business is an investment which carries a variable degree of risk, and that you are well advised to seek the advice of a qualified business advisor before making your decision to purchase a franchised business. The opinions of franchisees expressed through a Franchise Research Institute Report should be considered to be only a part of a complete evaluation of a potential franchise investment, and should not be relied upon as the sole source of information regarding any aspect of the investment. You acknowledge that most experts in franchising recommend that a prospective investor should speak personally with a number of current franchisees, in additional to carefully reviewing the information contained in the company’s Franchise Disclosure Documents (FDD) with a business advisor.

4. Consent to Use of Your Information and Your Privacy

We respect your privacy, and take seriously our responsibility to protect the confidentiality of the information you provide to us. We will retain your contact information, and will supply that contact information to the franchisor of the Franchise Research Institute Report you are requesting from. By agreeing to this set of terms and conditions, you consent to this use of your contact information
