Therese Evans, terminated Oz franchisee dies of suspected heart attack at 48

The traditional franchisor defense is an economic war of attrition.

It almost always works especially and the violence is usually borne (1) disproportionally and (2) by women.

Therese Evans was a six-year, two-unit newly terminated Wendy’s Supa Sundae franchisee. She leaves two boys (Josh and Luke) and husband Danny with a franchisor debt she claimed was only $7,000.

Please see your doctor regularly, especially when you get into a dispute.

2. Sad end: Wendy’s franchisee dies after detailing dispute

WHEN Therese Evans spoke to BusinessDay last Thursday she sounded upbeat and determined to continue her fight against Wendy’s, which had locked her out of her shop for a debt she put at $7000.

On Saturday morning Mrs Evans, 48, died of a suspected heart attack at her home in Singleton.

    The blood bath is franchising continues. We cannot bring Mrs. Evans back. Our sympathy for her family is little comfort. We can thank “Business Day” for revealing the power of the Franchisor to destroy the franchisee financially when the franchisee’s business can’t meet overhead exdpenses after years of hard work and comittment. .

    No doubt that the franchisors use the adhesory and un-bargained franchise contracts just like a gun and shoot to kill when protecting their own interests.
