What is a Franchise Seller Disclosure Form and Who Must File One?

The franchise seller disclosure form is a form that franchisors must file with state regulator agencies. The purpose of the form is to disclose and identify all individuals who will offer, solicit and sell franchises on behalf of the franchisor within the particular state. If you are a franchisor, it is recommended that a franchise seller disclosure form also be files for the franchisor's management identified in FDD Item 2. In fact, in the following states:

  • Hawaii
  • Illinois
  • Indiana
  • Maryland
  • Washington

Franchisor management already disclosed in FDD Item 2, must also file a Franchise Seller Disclosure Form.
