What is a Trade Secret in a Franchise?

When it comes to franchises and franchise systems "trade secrets" constitute information that (a) is maintained as confidential by the franchisor, (b) relates to unique business operations, methods and procedures of the franchise systems, (c) is typically disclosed to franchisees in the confidential operations manual, and (d) is not known to the public in general.

It is critical that franchisors implement legal systems and procedures to identify and protect trade secrets.
