Landmark Jury Verdict and Final Judgement Upholds Franchisor’s Duty to Act in Good Faith and Deal Fairly with its Franchisees

By Robert Zarco Founding Partner, Zarco, Einhorn, Salkowski and Brito

Recently, a California Superior Court 12-member jury in Los Angeles handed franchisees a huge victory when it delivered an $8.8-million-dollar verdict against El Pollo Loco (EPL) after the popular fast food chicken restaurant set up two competing locations in close vicinity of a franchisee’s existing restaurant location.

What made the case of Janice P. Handlers-Bryman and Michael Bryman v. El Pollo Loco, Inc. such a game-changer is that the court upheld the idea that a franchisor’s duty to act in good faith and to deal fairly with franchisees overrides explicit, yet legally and factually unconscionable terms and provisions laid out in the franchise disclosure document (FDD) including in the franchise agreement.
