Franchisors Who Give Flexibility to Owners Less Likely to Face Litigation, Says Attorney. “Franchisors who have a more team-building, in-this-together approach—who perhaps have shown flexibility when franchisees or franchisee associations have asking for flexibility or asked brands to change and adapt to mitigate affects from COVID—those brands are less likely to see as much litigation as brands that just sort of said, the contract is the contract, too bad,” Appleby said. Franchisors who give flexibility are looking out for their own best interests in addition to their franchisees, even if it means delaying royalty payments.

Popeyes Plots to Become Global Power An afterthought until its fried chicken sandwich went viral in 2019, Popeyes is confronting KFC’s supremacy, including its U.K. debut this year. The biggest prize, though, is China, where KFC is a cultural fixture as the country’s largest chain with more than 7,000 locations and three decades of experience. It may not work, of course. Its parent, Restaurant Brands International Inc., has a spotty overseas record, at best. But the ambition alone underscores just how startling a transformation the once-sleepy brand has undergone since the summer of 2019, when the launch of a seemingly ordinary sandwich—a piece of fried meat with pickles and mayo—ignited a frenzy that sparked long lines, sellouts and even fisticuffs all across America.

Business Meals Mean Tax Break Now, But Watch for Future Changes. Temporary 100% Deduction To provide targeted relief, the Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2021 (Public Law 116-260) threw the industry a bone: a temporary 100% deduction for business meal expenses provided by restaurants. The language modifying the deduction is short, weighing in at just under 100 words. Congress simply amended tax code Section 274 to remove the 50% cap for on such meals provided by a restaurant in 2021 and 2022. Section 274 Basics The tax code allows businesses to deduct expenses that are ordinary and necessary. An ordinary expense is one that is common and accepted in your trade or business, while a necessary expense is one that is helpful and appropriate for your trade or business. That includes business-related meals.
Two Top COVID-19 Legal Issues: Force Majeure, Sales Fi"The FDD language was an early place where I looked when the pandemic hit, and it seems that force majeure clause largely didn't apply," said Khajeei, who sees that vague language as a point of contention. "How do you see people clarifying that very standard language? I imagine franchisees want looser language and franchisors want more strict language. And for businesses that couldn't survive COVID, does force majeure apply or is that something that will be tested in the courts?"gures.

Thinking of a franchise business? It can be a good way to go, especially for first-time entrepreneurs over 50. If the idea of starting a business after 50 — perhaps a part-time one in retirement — seems overwhelming, you’re not alone. You might want to consider launching through a successful franchise operation, where you can follow in the footsteps of others who’ve done so already. But if your image of a franchise business is a teenager wearing a paper hat and chewing gum at the deep fryer, you need to think differently. Many franchisees are people starting second acts later in life.

Viewpoint: Eliminating tipping can help restaurants both serve customers better and provide for workers. Ann Hsing of the restaurant Pasjoli in Los Angeles argues now is the time to raise menu prices to change the way employees are compensated. With tipping, you are basically asking your customer to give you anywhere from 10% to 20% of what your revenue should be. That cost then goes into the true expense of paying your employees so that they can have livable wages, and I just find that to be very backwards
