We were delighted this week when Florida state senator Jack Latvala filed SB 750, An Act Relating Franchises, that would go a long way toward restoring some balance to the franchisee-franchisor relationship.  Senator Latvala filed to Protect Florida Small Business Act to level the playing field and address issues such as unjust terminations, restrictions on transfers and non-renewals. The legislation will soon be subject to a public hearing and we would encourage all of our Florida franchisees and subscribers to consider testifying encouraging adoption of the legislation.  There’s more to come – stay tuned!
