see all the emails they want to see all

the communications everything that each

both sides but particularly franchisees

do not be in default franchisees may say

why do i have to keep paying the royalty

pay the royalties you want to be wearing

the white hat not a gray hat and

certainly not a black hat no defaults

and then the last and probably the most

important thing we say is

if you can find a way to resolve this

negotiating or mediating try to avoid

getting into litigation or arbitration

be an arbitrator or a judge or a jury

making that decision so if there is a

reasonable way to settle settle
