UnhappyFranchisee.Com seeks to provide insider insights into franchise companies and franchise issues that the mainstream media and franchise advertising-based websites don’t cover.

We provide franchise owners, distributors and dealers the opportunity to anonymously share insider information, news and opinions without fear of retaliation from the franchisor.  We provide franchisors and other parties discussed on UnhappyFranchisee.Com an uncensored, unrestricted opportunity to correct, refute, clarify or disagree with allegations made about them, or opinions expressed about them.

Our mission is to host lively discussions so that our readers can consider both sides, then make up their own minds.

  • Camille's franchisee

    I would like to say “thank you” to Sean for all that he has gone through to serve as a voice for all the Camille’s franchisees that have suffered immense loses due to being misled by the franchisor.

    His efforts, as painful as they have been, gave us Franchisees a voice that otherwise had fallen on deaf ears. Sean’s efforts also were successful in engaging David R. To show his true colors, and demonstrate the kind of person he is….

    For that, we are eternally grateful to Sean. With sincere thanks,

  • Franchizee

    Thanks to this website, we have an outlet to speak the truth and the feds have a way of listening in to see the corruption, moral hazard, unethical and bullying in the Franchisor world. The stealing of money, talent’s and livelihoods of people thinking they are working to better their lives, but only the franchisor and a few franchisee’s are doing great. The rest are ruined financially and in many cases ruins their lives through death and divorce. Thanks Sean for shedding light on a long held dark secret from the franchise world to what happens to franchisees.

  • BDB Franchisee

    I really wished there is a similar website of yours in Australia so to keep the public/investors more aware of the potential “traps” in the market. Keep up the great work and hope you keep all franchise investments a safe option for all and all investments to be done in good faith.

  • Another BDB Franchisee

    Thanks for speaking out about Nathan Cuneen and Blow Dry Bar.
    You are doing us in Australia a great favor but also saving many more both here and there from losing there life savings.
