In return, the franchisee promises to give the franchiser a sum of money and to pay certain fees to acquire this knowledge and skill. Franchise agreements are not uniform. They have various terms and conditions and vary in price. Potential franchisees must meet certain financial requirements when being considered by the franchiser.
