Training Centre Franchise Agreement

Franchises have become an opportunity for people who want to start their own business in an already established brand to run a successful business. Whether you have the franchise or want to become a franchisee, an important document you need is a franchise agreement. 7.3 System Maintenance. The franchisee shall continue its efforts to maintain uniform standards of quality, cleanliness, appearance and service in all fitness centres of the system, to promote, protect and enhance the public image and reputation of the system and to increase the demand for services offered by all franchisees, and to this end, the franchisee: (b) such continuous regular consultation; advice and assistance to individuals or groups who are provided personally, by weekly correspondence (electronic or otherwise), by quarterly site visits or by regular telephone or written communications made available from time to time to all franchisees in the system, as the franchisee deems necessary or appropriate to assist the franchisee in meeting the requirements of the system. Such ongoing advice may include, but is not limited to, issues such as products and services to be offered to customers, improvement and evolution of fitness center operations, pricing, administration, accounting, accounting and inventory control, and franchisee operating issues; (f) provide ongoing training and nutrition programmes; and (b) additional services and products that the franchisee may authorize from time to time for use or sale by franchisees; 5.4 Advertising Cooperatives. In addition to the brand development costs and instead of the necessary local advertising expenses mentioned above, where a local advertising cooperative is established by the franchisor`s franchisees and approved by the franchisee, the franchisee must contribute to that cooperative the amount agreed by a majority of the members of the cooperative and pay that amount to the advertising cooperative at the times agreed by the majority. However, if the amount paid to the cooperative is less than that to be spent on the spot (point 5.3 above), the franchisee is nevertheless required to spend the difference on the spot. 6.2 Initial Training Program. At least twenty-one days (21) before the opening of the fitness center, the franchisee shall make available to the franchisee a ten-day training program (10) that the franchisee and his manager designated by the franchisee must complete before the opening of the fitness center. . . .
