Coming quickly on the heels of the success in California, the Pennsylvania legislature will hold a public hearing next Wednesday before the House Consumer Affairs Committee on pending fair franchising legislation filed by state Representative Peter Daley, longtime legislator and former Quiznos franchisee.  Daley’s legislation, H.1620 (formerly known as H.1346), provides for many significant improvements in franchise relations in the Keystone state, notably creating a specific period for a franchisee to cure a default, requiring good cause in the case of terminations, mandating written notice for non-renewals and prohibiting interference with a franchise owner’s right of association with other franchisees or an independent franchisee association.  The hearing will begin at 9:15 AM on Wednesday, October 21 in the Pennsylvania State House in Harrisburg, Room B-31, Main Capital.  We encourage Pennsylvania franchise owners to attend the hearing and, if possible, consider testifying in favor of this important legislation.
