Company Has Engaged Franchise Law Firm of Carl Khalil & Sada Sheldon, PLC to Administer Filings
MIAMI, Fla., July 7, 2017 - The Original Grilled Cheese Truck, a gourmet chef-driven food truck and restaurant brand expanding to the national and global marketplace, announced today it has commenced the process for state filings of its Franchise Disclosure Document ("FDD"). The FDD is a legal disclosure document mandated by the Federal Trade Commission that must be given to individuals interested in buying a U.S. franchise as part of the pre-sale due diligence process. It contains information essential to potential franchisees about to make a significant investment, such as financial disclosures and statements, litigation history, fees and expenses, estimated initial investment, approved suppliers, obligations of the franchisee, territory, financial performance representations and expectations, list of outlets, contacts, key public figures and more.
The initial target markets for the Company's franchise marketing efforts include Los Angeles, Atlanta, Chicago, Houston, Dallas, St. Louis, New York, D.C. and Philadelphia. The Company has already received several hundred inquiries regarding franchise opportunities since it announced the completion of its FDD. The Company recently executed an agreement with FranServe, Inc., a major national franchise marketing company, to handle franchise sales in selected markets.
"Our team has done a great job laying the groundwork for a national rollout of our franchise program with a major investment in time and capital. We believe our pricing program, which includes significant discounts for veterans, is quite attractive and provides entrepreneurs a great opportunity to own their own Original Grilled Cheese Truck business, whether gourmet food trucks, restaurants or food carts."
