Franchisee Narrative

It is very useful for a franchisee to write down in their own words a history of what happened from their point of view.

This is an outstanding example of a franchise investor’s narrative. In July 2005, it was written in preparation of what would become a 10 month-long Royal Canadian Mounted Police, Commercial Crime Section investigation.

We would like to help reduce the risk of franchise relationships being used as a vehicle for increased white-collar crime in Ontario. The high cost of litigation and franchisor intimidation make Ontario franchisees defenseless.

Several stakeholders, with this lender only being an example, exploit this systemic problem. Current Ontario franchise policy actually increases the risk to small business investors.

Thank you again and I look forward to working with you.

The RCMP officers were kind enough to suggest that a lawsuit was always possible when they informed the Oudovikines that they would be stopping their criminal investigation.
