Hey guys, I wanted to find out if I would be able to go ahead and find my own clients with my own business name? The Franchise agreement did state that I can't compete directly with them while using their mark or taking the clients off their hands or certain km away from your job site. I have only been in the franchise business for about 4 months now, and I have yet to make the money that was written in the agreement. Where do I stand in this situation? Say I wanted to leave the franchise due to them not providing me with the set income I initially paid for to buy the new franchise, will this be possible? On the agreement, it does state "Nothing in this clause will prevent the franchisee engaging in competition" although it does have it's non-compete clauses printed there. Worse case: I also wanted to know since I have family working with me, is it possible for them to get the client with their business name if they did not sign anything with the master franchisor? I worry too much about this, I don't like to be cheated so to speak. Thanks for any information.
