What You Need to Know About Franchising


Since the start of the Pony Express in St. Joseph, MO, the state has grown into a destination location for businesses, residents, and tourists, from St. Louis to Kansas City and everywhere in between.

As a non-registration state, Missouri has no franchise registration requirements, though franchises are still beholden to federal franchising laws and regulations.

The Gateway Arch in St. Louis is the tallest man-made national monument in the United States. It stands 630 feet tall.


Missouri has the 3rd lowest business costs in the U.S.


Missouri is the only state to have TWO Federal Reserve Banks.



Flat Fee Program for Franchisors

Spadea Lignana’s CORE program for franchisors is a cost-effective and practical solution for the ongoing legal needs of franchisors, including but not limited to, FDD updates, state registrations and franchise agreement executions. Through a proprietary cloud-based system we can effectively and efficiently manage FDD Disclosures and Franchise Agreement executions for fair flat fees billed monthly. We believe that hourly billing, although necessary in certain circumstances like complex M&A deals and litigation, can weigh on the relationship between client and attorney.  By coming up with a fair flat monthly fee, the uncomfortable negotiating of whether or not a 6 minute increment in your bill for replying to an email was legitimate goes away.
