AAHOA recently updated Point 12 of the 12 Points of Fair Franchising to reflect the current industry landscape. This is in response to the several noted acquisitions and mergers of one or more hotel brands between Franchisors in recent years. Best practices related to Point 12 now recommend that each Franchise Agreement include a “Change of Control” clause to protect the Franchisees in the event of a purchase, sale, acquisition, or merger of one or more hotel brands between Franchisors.
