As always, anonymous comments are welcome.

Why Ask for Thanks & Praise?

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.

However, franchisees and former franchisees are now being heard, thanks to their participation on sites like UnhappyFranchisee.Com and BlueMauMau.org.

DO YOU THINK UNHAPPYFRANCHISEE.COM PROVIDES A BENEFIT TO FRANCHISEES & FORMER FRANCHISEES?  PLEASE SHARE A COMMENT BELOW.

  1. Former BBI Employee says:

    Thank you Thank you Thank you. I used to work for the Corporate Office and through the years noticed the hype manufactured for the sole reason of D.R. making more and more money at the cost of other people. (IN MY OPINION)

    Without going into the details of what this company did, I DO KNOW FOR SURE, that this BLOG is helping X franchisees know that what they thought is TRUE is in fact TRUE. (LACK OF SUPPORT)

    They can see that there was not enough support from the Corporate OFFICE for them and countless others. That their FAILURE now is also BBI’s FAILURE.

    IT IS MY HOPE THAT NEVER AGAIN WILL THIS FRANCHISE COMPANY EVER EVER DO THIS TO INNOCENT PEOPLE AGAIN. The slogan reads… There is NO ( I ) in TEAM.

    People are talking, the word is getting out…. THERE IS A FINE LINE BETWEEN … STUPIDITY and CRIMINAL ACTION ????

    THANK YOU FOR ALLOWING READERS TO CATCH UP ON WHAT IS REALLY GOING ON IN THE FRANCHISE WORLD, instead of the unnecessary hype caused by the OWNERS of BBI and the media in TULSA.

    David is not the only guilty party in my opinion… There is a team still in the Corporate Office THAT SHOULD have KNOWN BETTER!!!!

  2. BBD (Broke By David) says:

    I too am a former employee at the corporate office at BBI, and I too saw the questionable tactics and did not stay long.

    The problem with the team still there is that they are all related to DR and have nothing else to do. They as well as everyone else there live in fear of being suddenly terminated and left hanging and maybe sued by DR’s henchman.

    My question is if the franchisees can prove wrong doing in his practices is ther some sort of legal action that can be taken to try to recover some of their lost dollars?

    Thank you Unhappy franchisee for what you have done, I have been on the other side of this lawsuit crazy company and I am proud you stood your ground.

    BTW, I don’t believe one thing that he said when he made his apology, I believe they were all lies fabricated to gain sympathy. I have seen him drink, I don’t believe he is an alcololic.

    FORMER LTH FRANCHISEE OWNER..NEED A GOOD LAWYER IN THE FREDERICKSBURG AREA TO TAKE ON LTH

  4. organized says:

    Contact Franchise attorney Jeffery Goldstein in Leesburg Va…He only represents Franchisees, is willing to litigate (important) and has taken on the big Franchises…
    Good luck

    Look around! This website is the only truth you can find in franchising. The IFA, Vetfran, Minorityfran, FTC, Federal Government, State Government and Local Government will not tell the truth or expose the criminal behavior surrounding corporations created to scam investors and tax payers out of their money . Victims are the ONLY way to educate yourself before you fall for a scam. This website provides that education if only you will take the time to learn from victims. Thank You Sean for your work!

    A coalition for franchisees would be great for franchising to give support to franchisees but that would end up just like abortion, 2nd Amendment and gay rights. Organizations never resolving an issue because they make so much money off the issue. Without strong leaders who can search their heart to lead our country we will continue to not resolve issues and allow organizations to profit from corruption.

    If a false business opportunity is supported by a coalition is the coalition responsible for the behavior of the organization providing the opportunity?

    If you are thinking of investing in ANY franchise please pay attention to this website as this website is unique. Thanks again!
