Buying and Operating a Franchise in NJ: The NJ Franchise Practices Act

THE NEW JERSEY FRANCHISE PRACTICES ACT

If you operate a franchise in the State of New Jersey or are considering the purchase of a franchise in New Jersey the New Jersey Franchise Practices Act (NJFPA) affords you additional rights that you might not be aware of.  The New Jersey Franchise Practices act was established to provide supplemental rights to franchisees in situations involving the termination and sale of their franchise.

In particular‚ among the various protections afforded to new Jersey franchisees‚ the NJFPA restricts a franchisors ability to terminate a franchise relationship.  Irrespective of the contractual terms of the franchise agreement‚ in the State of New Jersey a franchise relationship may not be terminated unless:

As such‚ the NJFPA provides supplemental protections to New Jersey franchisees and imposes additional obligations on a franchisor.  If you are considering the purchase of a franchise or facing the termination of your franchise rights you must discuss with your franchise lawyer the protections that may be available to you.  If you are a franchisor considering the sale of a franchise in the State of New Jersey‚ you must insure that your franchise agreement and FDD are consistent with your obligations under the NJFPA.
