What’s an FDD and Why is it Important?

In your sandwich shop franchise research, you’re bound to come across a variety of franchise vernacular. Initial investment, discovery days, and operations are some common terms in the franchise industry. Another term you’ll see quite often is FDD, or franchise disclosure document.

Franchise disclosure documents exist to provide prospective franchisees with all of the information necessary to make a decision about opening a sandwich shop franchise. This often includes information about the franchisor, franchise system, and agreements.

There are generally 23 Items contained in an FDD. This usually begins with a history of the franchisor and the company, then covers litigations, bankruptcy, fees, investments, restrictions, obligations, financing, training and support, territories, trademarks, patents, copyrights, renewal or termination, public figures, financial performance, franchisee locations, financial statements, contracts, and receipts.
