Franchising is highly regulated in the United States at the state and federal level. At the federal level, the Federal Trade Commission requires franchisors to provide a detailed disclosure document, which contains specific information about the franchisor and the proposed franchise agreement. In addition, many states require franchisors to register before they can offer or sell franchises in those states.
