In late March 2018, Nationals MP John Williams put forward a motion for a Parliamentary Inquiry into the Franchising Sector in Australia.
The motion was passed unopposed in the Senate.
The Inquiry arises, in part, from a number of recent scandals involving the Retail Food Group (which owns Gloria Jeans Coffees, among others), Domino's Pizza, 7-Eleven and Caltex.
If you are an existing participant in the franchising sector or looking to buy a franchise, it will be important to keep yourself informed of the progress and outcomes of the Inquiry.
