Do the Canadian Franchise Association, Just Desserts and Sweet Jesus recognize any spiritual or family values?

March 27, 2018

Sweet Jesus is not just another flash-in-the-pan predatory franchise scam, although it most assuredly is that. In spades.

Instructively, it is a recent example in a long line of web of lies-filled schemes that the franchisor-led trade associations spin in Canada and around the world which enables far greater evil to manifest.

Reminds me of the cocaine-fueled Just Desserts situation, before the homicide(s).

Happy Holy Week to all my franchise banker friends, as well.


Should the 1,100 Canadian Tim Hortons’ franchisees unionize themselves?

December 7, 2017

Considering the Ontario Labour Relations Board’s ruling (The Ontario Labour Relations Board Opens The Door To Franchisee Unionization In The Canada Bread Certification Case), you’d think it’s worth looking at.

Do you think the Tim Hortons franchisees have understood that they’ll likely be paying 3G Capital for the privilege of exiting their stores?

  • ie. that the franchisor, currently, can unilaterally drive a franchisee’s equity into the negative and hide the fact from the market and other with confidentiality agreements.

Do you think the franchisees perceive themselves to be at war?


Canadian franchise bankers have learned a great deal about opportunism (self-interest with deceit) from their franchise bar friends.

Franchising Opportunism

Paper to Industry Canada

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

1. Modern franchising creates opportunism by separating ownership from control.

2. Economic theory indicates fraud is likely to occur with credence goods or services. Franchise industry system owners, lenders, consultants and lawyers provide credence services.

3. Franchisors sell franchises not only to the public but to their industry peers. A sophisticated fraud model has been developed. Franchisors licence their franchisees’ opportunism to financial institutions and consultants.

4. Fraud requires a tolerant environment.

5. Malfeasance is minimized with a free flow of information regarding material investment risks. The Canadian franchise industry is characterized by high levels of information flow on the all levels with the dramatic exception of the small business investor.

6. The most accurate, independent reputation data is held by those with the greatest barriers of communication.

7. There is sufficient internal and external evidence to warrant halting franchised loan claims and to notify the appropriate federal and provincial agencies for evaluation.

8. Further research is warranted.


There would be no charge for me to create a WordPress weblog for the Tim Hortons franchisees.

Who dislikes my involvement more: the franchisor, franchisee leadership or the franchisee lawyers?

The Canada Bread class action was valued at $350-million.

Gag orders create filthy “settlements”.


Study A Civil Action, 1998: Don’t be a patsy franchisee leader in a Big Tort action.

It stopped being about justice the moment the writ was dropped.

The truth is in the bottom of a bottomless pit.

“I don’t have to call anyone, do you?”


It’s important for Canada’s two elite class action franchise lawfirms to give the appearance of a fair fight.

November 15, 2017

Behind the scenes, the amount the franchisor will be paying out to the lawyers has already been agreed to.

Why risk paying out +$1B when $25 million to each law firm (> 0.5%) will trip up the lawsuits?

It’ll never get to trial anyway.
