What You Need to Know About Franchising

New Hampshire

New Hampshire’s naturally beautiful environment creates an ideal home for white-tailed deer, purple finches, brook trout, and…franchises! With no sales or income tax, New Hampshire lets franchise owners keep more of their profits in their pockets.

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

There are more donut franchises in New Hampshire than any other type of franchise.


There are more than 3,100 franchise locations in New Hampshire.



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.
