South Australia franchisor The Cheesecake Shop apparently sees itself as immune from anything remotely resembling good faith franchising. Here I can see no agenda other than to churn franchisees and take back their businesses when they cannot comply with inflated rebranding costs.
Australia’s largest franchisor with by far the highest revenue appears to hold the key to why the Australian federal government ignored the important franchise inquiry recommendations and continually resisted meaningful legislative reform.
Another exceptional blog from Jason Gehrke at the Asia Pacific Centre for Franchising Excellence at Australia’s Griffith University. This time Jason suggests systemic anything in franchising is overstated on the basis that there is no supporting data.
