Frequently Asked Questions
How is the size of the Protected Territory determined?
You will be granted a protected territory consisting of a 3-mile radius from your approved location, in a specific City and State, and will be licensed to operate one Yogis Grill® Casual Japanese Restaurant at said approved location and within your protected territory. In some smaller cities, and at our sole discretion, we may award 1 franchise per city, even though the City may be larger than five miles wide North to South or East to West. During the term of the Franchise Agreement, we will not establish a company operated or franchised Yogis Grill® Casual Japanese Restaurant with this area. The continuation of the exclusivity is not dependant upon sales volume, market penetration, or any other contingency. Both parties cannot modify your territory except by mutual written agreement. Each Franchised Restaurant Business is operated according to a separate Franchise Agreement.

There are no territorial restrictions on accepting business from customers who reside or work outside your protected territory, nor are there any such restrictions on us or on other franchisees, but you will not be approved to conduct any independent advertising or marketing campaign outside your protected territory.

Franchisee's rights are limited to the location listed in the Franchise Agreement. Franchisee shall not relocate the Premises without prior written approval from Franchisor. Franchisor, in considering a request for relocation, shall take into account the business desirability of the proposed new location, its distance from other and future-planned franchised locations, the traffic patterns, security, cost, demographics of the area, and other such factors.
