Why the Over Regulation on the Franchising Model?
Franchising is the fastest way to build small businesses, provide jobs, create money flows. Currently the Federal Trade Commission wishes to increase the over regulation on the franchising sector. The way the Federal Trade Commission conducts itself provides little incentive or allows few new entrepreneurial companies to merge from the ashes to become the next Wendy's Hamburger, McDonalds, Duncan Donuts, Century 21, KFC, Dominos Pizza, Midas Muffler, etc. Why? What are we really saying here? More complicated laws slows progress of the species, to move commerce forward.
Are we cutting off the hand that feeds us, poisoning the horse representing the wheels of commerce, shooting ourselves in the foot; and if so why? So a few attorneys can hijack yet another industry, playing God, yet creating nothing; only destroying along the way as the collect fees and settlements? If one were to look at the good VS. evil scenario here; The bureaucracy and lawyers are evil and the franchisors and entrepreneurs are good.
We invite the Federal Trade Commission to move over to the other side, repent for their sins against humanity, jobs and economy. We invite the Federal Trade Commission to join the strong and support the capitalism concept, which founded this great nation. We invite the Federal Trade Commission to walk to the back of the cave to look at the projection room, then take a gander and look outside and see the real world of franchising. A world which is not about laws and rules as much as delivering goods and services such as: Haircuts, carwashes, oil changes, janitorial services, hotel rooms, hamburgers, pizza, chicken, donuts, cars, bouquets, rental equipment and clean windows, that the Federal Trade Commission can use to look out into the real world with. Last time I checked those are only but a few of the things that franchising faithfully delivers to American Consumers each and every day. Think about it.
