Can I Negotiate Franchise Royalty Fees In The Franchise Agreement?

Typically no, you cannot negotiate royalty fees. However, there are some instances where royalty fee negotiability is disclosed in the FDD and where a franchisor may be willing to reduce its royalty rates. However, be cautious about franchisors who are willing to modify royalty rates. Royalties, typically should be uniform across a franchise system. However, if royalties are not negotiable you still need to know that many elements of your franchise agreement are negotiable.
