Concluding Remarks

  • Jenny Buchan


The fundamentals of franchising have changed dramatically in the 21st century. The complex new franchising world includes hitherto unknown stakeholders; venture capitalists, listed companies and liquidators. It positions franchisees as consumers to a greater extent than ever before, well removed from their franchisor and its corporate governance obligations. The low hanging legal fruit has been picked in franchising. This chapter is a call to re-examine assumptions and respond to the new franchising.
