CORNWELL TOOLS Sues Its Own Franchisees

(UnhappyFranchisee.Com) Cornwell Tools is threatening to put a lien on the young couple’s house, and are threatening a trademark infringement lawsuit because Toby is trying to sell his Cornwell-logoed truck.

Toby Warner has started a website and a YouTube Channel to document his American-Dream-Turned-Nightmare experience as a Cornwell Tools franchisee.
