Comprehensive Franchise Advisory Council Constitution – Best Practice # 5
FACs, however, often vary in their effectiveness from both a franchisor and franchisee point of view.
We find a common pattern of issues around FACs that are partly rooted in a short and/or poorly written FAC Constitution. We often find FAC constitutions do not cover many important areas, leave some open to interpretation, or includes counter-productive structures or suggestions.
An FAC involves a lot of effort on an ongoing basis on the part of both franchisor and representative franchisees. It therefore follows that it is worth ensuring that the basis for the FAC (i.e., the constitution) is structured in an optimal way for the business.
