What’s the story on the Cork & Olive franchisee co-op?
Did all the franchisees join? Are there new franchisees (not yet opened) who will join? Who didn’t?
What is the structure/entity? How does it work? Is there a Chairman/President? Who’s in charge?
Who owns the trademark? Are franchisees just licensed to use it under their 10-year franchise agreement, or has Probst given up ownership?
Does Probst still have the right to use the name and graphics?
Will the Co-op continue to recruit new members and license the name to stores? Will it be a franchise?
The Bradenton story created more questions than answers. What’s the real story?
