Hi there. My brother is a current Franchisee with a company. He's happy and the franchise is doing really well. I have noticed his concept or what he's doing in terms of marketing and trade secret ideas are very simple and can be executed by anyone. Having worked for him a few times, I had an idea of doing my own business similar to his almost same product, just tweaked. I don't want it to affect his business or get him in trouble but I really want to go for it as I think my idea, in my opinion, will be hugely beneficial. I would obviously hire a commercial lawyer before doing anything but I just want to get an idea if anyone else has dealt with an issue like this. Will he be breaking his franchise agreement under commercial law if I do something similar to his business? I was "inspired" by his work but he never gave me anything and has no idea what I'm planning. What do I do? Any help would be great.
