  • These restrictions usually include the products or services which can be offered, pricing and geographic territory.
  • For some people, this is the most serious disadvantage to becoming a franchisee.
  • In addition to the initial franchise fee, franchisees must pay ongoing royalties and advertising fees.
  • Franchisees must be careful to balance restrictions and support provided by the franchisor with their own ability to manage their business.
