The UFOC is basically your starting point for finding out detailed legal and financial information about a franchisor and franchise opportunity, and also in negotiating the terms of the Franchise Agreement.
It should raise some questions and issues that must be addressed before signing the agreement. You should also contact a legal representative to help with legal terminology stated within the UFOC. This is necessary to understand fully the terms and conditions outlined in the Franchise Agreement.
