it doesnt state specifically anywhere but this is a new thing they have done and i cannot compete against them I am at the end of my term and they are forcing me out and sweeping up all the territories
march 26 2013
the territories are avalible for purchase,and the new company coming in is eks management llc(company profile indicates that eks is headed up but jason sayers who is also the president of the Filta group(the franchisor). They are lying to me and acting like a outside company is coming in to sweep up the market when it is actually filta. how do i compete with the franchisor. i dont see any language in the ufoc about them becoming the franchisee themselves. This has never happened before in any market it is a new angle they are taking to run me out and project a false image to the network that they are attracting big business now
First they said they would not renew for various frivolous reasons when i contested they agreed to renewal but put short and dificult time frames in place. they were advertising in this market back in dec 2012 to be ready to go in this market on March 26. i think this case is to complex to figure out one question at a time so lets focus on how i can obtain local legal help if i dont have a $2000-$5000 retainer fee
I am in fort worth texas and i feel i have a strong case i have $1000 for up front and will have more as we continue,im looking to have this reviewed and consouled on where to go from here
thanks I really havent got any questions answered here due to complexity of case it is just to difficult to express over email
