Franchise inquiry puts dodgy $170b industry under the microscope

An inquiry will investigate the $170 billion franchising industry after claims big companies are rorting small-time franchisees.

Major companies including 7-Eleven, Dominos, Caltex, Pizza Hut and many more will go under the microscope.

The major chains are being accused of strong-arming their franchisees and not being upfront with small business owners about the costs.

It’s been called on by Nationals Senator John ‘Wacka’ Williams.

“We do have thousands and thousands¬†of very good franchises… plenty we don’t hear complaints about,” he tells Ben Fordham.

“To get this right for the future, I think we need to have a good close look.”

Senator Williams also comments on company tax cuts.
