One year. Otherwise risk having it stuck down. Non Non competes are rarely enforced. they need to be very limited in time and space. unless a few miles and months will typically fail. Most employers wont even pursue it and clients are free to choose for themselves!Please let me know if the reply is acceptable by responding “yes” or “acceptable”

I am buying 4 units of a franchise from the franchisor. He still has other locations. He is offering me a non compete for 20 years at a 5 mile radius. Does that seem fair to you or will that not hold up in court?
Business Lawyer: Infolawyer, Attorney replied 3 months ago
It is fair but may not be enforced. That said a court may shorten it at Most so I would not raise an issue with an extended period such as this.Please let me know if the reply is acceptable by responding “yes” or “acceptable”
