Customer Question

Hello My name is XXXXX XXXXX I have paid a franchise fee to snappy tomato pizza. But I am not doing a location. So I call them to refund me franchise fee. they send me this e-mail.

Mr. Patel,

We received your photo copies. However, due to the structure of our business, I would ask you to please contact Tony Shariffi to get a refund of your money.

Tony can then work with Jeremy Deters the president of Snappy on a refund. Tony’s phone number is XXXXX

Thanks for help in this matter,

Thank you for the post, did the other party breach the franchise agreement? Also, am I correct to assume that a franchise agreement was executed prior to you providing your deposit of $27,500?
Customer: replied 6 years ago.

Hello Harry, I'm very sorry for the delay. But, I'm stuck in the middle of this and can not do anything for you myself. I don't think anyone is saying that you can't get your money back. However, for the process to move forXXXXX, XXXXX must contact Jeremy Deters to discuss the situation. Thanks, XXXXX XXXXX

Can you please tell me what are the chances of me geting my money back?

Expert:  MShore Law replied 6 years ago.
Hello, by breach I mean where the other party acted inconsistent with the terms of the contract. The likelihood of getting your money back depends on whether the money you offered up was offered as a non-refundable deposit, per the terms of the contract. If so, it is unlikely you will get your money back. If not, it is likely you will because you are entitled to a refund.
