Information Sharing Project, ISP

The ISP will revolutionize the franchise industry.

I started in 1998 by collecting franchise-related documents from around the world. They were drawn from public hearing transcripts, media articles and correspondence. I now have 1,500 of them from over 35 countries.

I began to notice patterns in behaviors.

What I didn’t have was a language to describe what I was seeing. I started to create keywords and keyword phrases to describe these behaviors. I now have over 1,000 of these industry descriptors.

Some examples are:

  • 95 per cent of legal fees are paid by franchisors,
  • Advertising fund use disagreements,
  • Churning (serial reselling),
  • Franchisee revolt,
  • Lender’s due diligence not done properly,
  • Never owe your lawyer money,
  • Regulatory capture breeds its own incompetence

The ISP does a whole lot more than translate franchise gobbledygook into plain English.
