Pet Care, Pet Products, and Veterinary Franchises
The market for pet-related products and services in the United States is huge and growing every year. Franchises catering to the pet care market are, not surprisingly, increasing in number and success. These franchises include grooming, pet daycare and boarding, sale of pet products, and veterinary practices.
As experienced franchise lawyers, Mulcahy LLP can help determine whether owning a pet/veterinary franchise is the right fit for you. We have the knowledge needed to help clients identify the risks involved in buying a franchise. We can also provide clients with comprehensive legal guidance throughout their business endeavor. When franchisees are ready to sell their business or want to get out of a franchise contract, we can facilitate the sale or initiate discussions with the franchiser.
Corporate practice of medicine directly affects three fundamental elements of a franchise:
- Control – the franchisee uses the franchised business system, and is subject to franchisor’s control.
- Fees – the franchisee pays fees to the franchisor
- Trademark – the franchisee uses the franchisor’s trademark.
