I’m Not in California, How Can You Help Me?

Even if you are not located in California there are many ways I can still be of service to you. For example, if you are considering franchising I can advise you on your state’s requirements. I have experience registering new franchises in all states that require registration. If your state is not one of the 14 to 17 states (some are filing states…) with their own registration process, you will still need a Franchise Disclosure Document (FDD) that complies with the FTC rule. I can absolutely help you. My clients appreciate my 25+ years experience, that I get to the heart of an issue quickly in a cost effective manner.
