International franchise agreement
An international franchise agreement, which may be adapted according to whether non-exclusive or exclusive rights in a particular territory are to be granted. This document has been adapted from PLC's UK version to provide a plain English, jurisdiction-neutral starting point for local counsel to adapt for use in cross-border transactions.
The document is drafted as a direct franchise between the business owner and the franchisee. Such an arrangement might not be feasible in an international context (see Practice note, Franchising: international overview (www.practicallaw.com/8-107-4388)), in which case the franchisee could be appointed by the master franchisee for a territory.
