A Franchise Agreement is a contract between two parties namely the Franchisor and Franchisee to allow the latter to use the business model or system of the former. A Franchisor is one who operates a business that has been developed already. The Franchisor then allows to use its business model or system and operate under the franchise business name in exchange for a payment of a fee or series of fees. A Franchise Agreement lays down the terms and conditions as to how the Franchisee can operate the franchise business using the brand, goodwill, and reputation of the Franchisor.

Illustration: Company A is a well-established fast-food restaurant that has gained popularity over the years. To allow the brand of Company A to expand in other parts of the Philippines, it now allows its business model to be used by other persons or businesses. This is called a Franchise Business. Company B now wants to operate under the business model of Company A, and to do that, they would have to enter into a contract called a Franchise Agreement.

A Franchise Agreement provides the rights and obligations of the parties. The franchisor sets what the franchisee should expect when the Franchise Agreement is executed and signed by the parties, specifically what should be done by the Franchisee before, during, and after executing the agreement according to the standards laid down and instructions given by the Franchisor.

This kind of agreement helps the parties set the boundaries of their relationship as a franchisor and franchisee. The terms and conditions under a Franchise Agreement generally provide the rights of both parties, remedies available, fees to be paid, prohibitions, and instructions that must be followed by the franchisee.
