What You Need to Know About Franchising


The Lone-Star State prides itself on being independent. Once its own nation entirely, Texas is unique when it comes to small business. The state is home to 3 million small businesses, which employ 4.9 million people. That’s more than 45.1% of Texas’ private sector workforce – can we get a yee-haw?!

Texas has not enacted franchise-specific laws and is not a franchise registration state. However, Texas has enacted Business Opportunity Laws and, before offering or selling a franchise in Texas, you must first file a one-time Business Opportunity Exemption Notice with the Texas Secretary of State. The one-time filing fee is $25.

Attorneys Who Understand TX Franchise Law

Franchise laws vary from state to state, and it can be difficult to understand the requirements. Spadea Lignana has streamlined the process to ensure you remain compliant as you grow nationally.

We also work with franchisors all over the southwest including Arizona, Oklahoma, and New Mexico.


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.
