@Reid_Rothschild I’m pretty sure if I covered joint-employer issues, we would disagree, so I won’t bother.
@Reid_Rothschild @asymmetricinfo FedEx and its drivers has nothing in common with franchise restaurants. Just don’t discuss them together.
@Reid_Rothschild @asymmetricinfo @FedExGround Actually, franchise restaurants disclose to potential franchisees the full distribution of revenues, costs, and profits other franchisees earn. Information is pretty symmetrical.
@Reid_Rothschild @asymmetricinfo @FedExGround This is completely wrong. The best way to think of a franchise is as an independent business paying a royalty in exchange for the use of licensed technology. You pay to use the brand and recognizable products. Licensing is used in all sorts of industries.
