Franchise And Dealership Law Lawyers In Burnside Kentucky

Burnside is a city in Pulaski County, Kentucky, United States. The population was 637 at the 2000 census. In 2005, Burnside became the only town in Pulaski County to allow the sale of alcoholic beverages by the drink in qualified establishments. Since then, Burnside annexed several miles of shoreline along Lake Cumberland in order to include Lee's Ford Marina, allowing it to sell alcohol. On August 28, 2007 Burnside voters once again passed the sale of alcoholic beverages by the drink in restaurants. The final tally was 227-104 in favor of the sale of alcohol in restaurants that seat at least 100 people and derive at least 70% of the total gross receipts from the sale of food. This vote was started by two Pulaski County clergymen in an attempt to reverse Burnside's "moist" status.

What is franchise and dealership law?

Franchising law involves helping new business owners evaluate franchising opportunities, and assist in the purchase and operation of business franchises -- an alternative to starting a new, independent business from scratch. Franchising allows businesses owners to reduce their investment risk by associating with an established company, but may also require business owners to relinquish significant control over their business.
