Re: franchise vs license

A franchise is a license but a license isn't necessarily a franchise. There are all kinds of licenses, including franchised licenses. My guess is that the seller is either selling a business opportunity, where he gives you a sort of plan on how to build your business and then you go out and do it. Or, he is selling you a franchise license in which he trains and controls/supports the way you operate your business, but does not want to admit that it is a franchise so that he doesn't have to pay fees to comply with franchise registration and regulation.
