    Ohio Business Opportunity Laws

    The state of Michigan has its own statutory framework that deals with franchises in Michigan. This is found in Michigan’s Franchise Investment Law. The terms of these statutes are enforceable under Section 445.1536 which grants the authority to conduct investigations, require statements under oath, subpoena witnesses, and require document production to determine whether the laws have been violated or not. The laws further define the franchising relationship as it relates to franchises in Michigan as “written or oral arrangements between a franchisor and franchisee in connection with the offer or sale of a franchise.”
