All franchise advertising should include the following disclaimer:
This advertisement is not an offering. An offering can only be made by the delivery of a Franchise Disclosure Document in compliance with applicable state and federal laws. Certain states in the United States regulate the offer and sale of franchises within their respective states. Registration states include California, Hawaii, Illinois, Indiana, Maryland, Michigan, Minnesota, New York, North Dakota, Rhode Island, South Dakota, Virginia, Washington, and Wisconsin (“Registration States”). We will not offer or sell any franchises to any residents of any Registration State until we have filed and received approval of our Franchise Disclosure Document from that specific Registration State. If you are a resident of any Registration State or any state that requires approval of our Franchise Disclosure Document, then you will not be offered a franchise until we can deliver to you a Franchise Disclosure Document that has been registered and approved according to the laws of your state. For New York residents, no franchise is sold in New York by or on behalf of us until the offering has been registered and declared effective and our franchise disclosure document has been delivered to the offeree before the sale in compliance with Article 33 of the General Business Law, the New York Franchise Act.
If you are a resident of a country outside of the United States that regulates the offer and sale of franchises, then we will not offer you a franchise unless and until we have complied with any applicable pre-sale registration and/or disclosure requirements in your applicable jurisdiction.
