Circumventing Disclosure Requirements
Bekah v. Three for One Pizza (2003)
The franchisor required that the franchisee purchase a store through a conventional purchase and sale agreement before entering into a franchise agreement. By structuring the transaction this way, the franchisor attempted to circumvent the disclosure requirements that the Act imposes on franchisors. This court decision was among the earliest reported franchise disclosure decisions under the Arthur Wishart Act (Franchise Disclosure), 2000.
