Becoming a Franchisee in Connecticut

Here are some things you should know if you want to become a franchisee in Connecticut:

  • Connecticut is not a franchise registration state, but it has a Business Opportunity Investment Act that regulates the sale of business opportunities.
  • If you have a federally registered trademark or service mark, you can exempt yourself from the registration requirements by filing a one-time notice with the Department of Banking before offering or selling your franchise. There is no fee for this filing, but you must provide some information and documents, such as your trademark certificate and licensing agreement.
  • If you do not have a federally registered trademark or service mark, you must register your franchise as a business opportunity with the Department of Banking, which involves submitting an application, a consent to service of process, a copy of your FDD, financial statements, advertisements, contracts, and a $400 fee. You must also renew your registration annually for a $100 fee.
  • Connecticut also has a Franchise Act that governs the relationship between franchisors and franchisees, especially regarding the termination, cancellation, or non-renewal of a franchise. The Franchise Act prohibits franchisors from terminating or not renewing a franchise without good cause and reasonable notice, and provides franchisees with some rights and remedies in case of such actions.
