UnhappyFranchisee.Com is Under Constant Fire.
UnhappyFranchisee.Com is a unique franchise discussion and information website that invites franchise owners, former franchisees and others to share their experiences and candid views without having to disclose their identities.
Our detractors (mostly disreputable franchise & biz-opp sellers) are constantly trying to discredit us as a mere gripe site and dismiss those who participate here as a bunch of whiners who don’t take responsibility for their own actions.
That’s because sunlight is the best disinfectant, and Unhappy Franchisee is one of the only truly transparent places to get the real, uncensored truth about franchising and specific franchise from the best source possible: real franchise owners.

Why We Need Your Thanks & Praise.
While thanks and praise also is good for our morale, that’s not what we’re after.
Our detractors (ie those selling questionable franchise opportunities) are constantly trying to discredit UnhappyFranchisee.Com as an anti-franchising gripe site.
Open discussion and anonymous commenting are a HUGE threat to those who fear exposure of the truth.
UnhappyFranchisee.Com is, in fact, a pro-franchising website that believes in the 1st Amendment rights of franchisees and prospective franchisees to openly discuss franchise companies and their opportunities without corporate interference.
UnhappyFranchisee.Com agrees with the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) that it’s critical for prospective franchise owners to be able to learn from the experiences and opinions of current and recent franchise owners before they invest in a franchise.
Since the passing of the FTC Rule on Franchising in October, 1979, the FTC has required franchisors to provide franchise prospects with the contact information for current franchise owners as well as those who recently left the system.
Franchisors of sub-standard franchise opportunities have deployed a multitude of strategies (such as gag orders, non-disparagement clauses, threats & intimidation) for short-circuiting the FTC Rule and keeping their inadequacies hidden from prospective franchisees.
