What You Need to Know About Franchising
Any Green Bay Packers fan can tell you Wisconsin is known for their cheese. In fact, the state is called America’s Dairyland because of its many dairy farms, milk production, and exports. Manufacturing also drives the economy, especially paper products, and the state’s eastern coastline along Lake Michigan provides a destination location for tourists.
Per the Wisconsin Franchise Investment Law, Wisconsin is a registration state. Franchise businesses must register their business with the state and pay an annual fee of $400.
99.4% of businesses in Wisconsin are small businesses, employing half of the state’s workers
On average, Wisconsin has a net migration of 5500. People want to live there!

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.
