Are franchise agreements negotiable?

The franchisor determines which parts of a franchise agreement they are willing to negotiate with a prospective franchisee. Generally, some provisions in a franchise agreement may be negotiable, others provisions likely are not. If you would like to negotiate the terms of a franchise agreement, you should talk with a knowledgeable franchise law attorney before you approach the franchisor with requested changes.
