What You Need to Know About Franchising
If you like husking corn and friendly college sports rivalries with neighboring ag states like Wyoming, then Nebraska is the perfect place for you! Agriculture isn’t the only thriving industry in the Cornhusker State, though. Nebraskans take their health very seriously – with 8.3% of the state’s franchises being fitness centers.
Nebraska is a “notice filing state” meaning the state requires a notice filing but does not actually review the FDD. Prior to offering or selling a franchise in Nebraska, you must file a notice with the State of Nebraska Department of Banking and Finance, Bureau of Securities. The initial Nebraska filing fee is $100.
Nebraska has just over 151,000 small businesses - the majority of which are food processing or fitness centers.
Nebraska is the birthplace of the Reuben Sandwich.
In 1862, during the Civil War, the Homestead Act offered families 160-acre parcels of land in the west in exchange for building on and farming the land for five years. This spurred Nebraska to become a state in 1867.

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.
