FRANdata, the leading supplier of information on and about the
U.S. franchise industry, has gone live with a more robust Web site
featuring the convenience of on-line purchases.
"FRANdata is excited to offer our customers this enhanced
Website, giving them faster, more convenient access to our product
line, " said Darrell Johnson, President of FRANdata. "In
particular, the online purchase option lets our customers request
and receive the information they need, when and where they want
it. It is the equivalent of being open 24/7."
Among the customer-friendly enhancements to the site is the ability
to purchase and download a complete inventory of Uniform Franchise
Offering Circulars (UFOCs). Similar to a securities prospectus,
a UFOC provides critical information on the history, operations,
and financials of a franchisor.
"I was pleased by how quickly I could download my UFOC purchase,"
said Patti Frapasella, a paralegal with Shumaker, Loop & Kendrick,
LLP in Toledo, Ohio. "It made me look good to deliver a 265-page
document to my attorney almost immediately following his request
