|Franchise State Registration Process|
| Twenty-six states have business opportunity or franchise registration laws. Most of these laws prohibit sales of business opportunities or franchises unless the seller gives potential purchasers a pre-sale disclosure document that has first been filed with a designated state agency.|
State business opportunity laws typically cover every imaginable type of business opportunity that might be offered. If a business opportunity seller is not required to provide pre-sale disclosures by the Franchise Rule, these disclosures will almost always be required by the laws of the states listed below.
