Franchise Lawyer Serving Clients in Pennsylvania | On Your Side

We find that often, franchisors are out only for themselves.

Whether you’re just starting out or require legal assistance dealing with your franchisor, FortmanSpann, LLC is here to help.

What to Know About Starting a Franchise in Pennsylvania

It is important that you understand before starting your franchise that Pennsylvania is a non-registration state. Although this means that there are no state-specific franchise laws that you must follow, you must keep in mind that franchise laws at a federal level are still applicable. Federal franchise laws are regulated by the Federal Trade Commission (FTC). So, with that being said, you must properly evaluate your business in light of the laws put in place by the FTC prior to operating, offering, or selling your franchise in Pennsylvania, or in any state for that matter.
