Starting Your Alaska Franchise
If you’re looking to start a franchise in the state of Alaska, you have a lot to consider. Just some of the most important things for you to keep in mind are as follows:
- Alaska does not have specific franchise laws or require franchise disclosure document (FDD) registration. This implies that franchisors do not need to file their FDDs with any state agency before offering or selling franchises in Alaska.
- Alaska has business opportunity laws that regulate the sale of certain types of businesses that involve a seller’s assistance or promise of income. These laws are administered by the Alaska Department of Law.
- Franchises are exempt from the business opportunity laws if they meet the definition of a franchise under the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) Rule and comply with its disclosure requirements. The FTC Rule defines a franchise as a business relationship that involves: (1) the right to use a trademark or trade name; (2) significant control or assistance by the franchisor; and (3) a required payment of at least $500 within six months of starting operations.
