Franchise And Dealership Law Lawyers In Kidron Ohio

Kidron is an unincorporated community in southwestern Sugar Creek Township, Wayne County, Ohio, United States. It is home to an outdoor flea market held Thursdays and Saturdays, weather permitting, and, since 1929, a retail store called Kidron Town and Country, which includes a grocery store, restaurant, butcher's shop, pharmacy, and dry goods. Because Kidron is unincorporated, it has no police force; police protection is the responsibility of the Wayne County Sheriff's Department. Kidron attracts many of its visitors for its diverse tool shops, especially Lehman's Hardware, which sells Amish-made goods and serves a wide range of customers from local Amish to tourists from around the world. There is an underground water spring in Kidron, and a protected forest is located nearby. Surrounding countryside is largely used for farming. A public museum is located in Kidron at the Kidron Sonnenberg Heritage Center. Besides displays of local historic items, the museum includes a library and a database of genealogical information for research particularly related to those of Swiss heritage and Amish and Mennonite background that settled in the Kidron area in the early 1800s. The museum is operated by the non-profit Kidron Community Historical Society. In addition to operating the museum, the Kidron Community Historical Society is developing a cultural heritage project named Sonnenberg Village, that will demonstrate Mennonite life and culture in the 19th Century. Being built in Kidron on a five-acre tract of land, Sonnenberg Village will consist of historical buildings from the time period, and a Welcome Center for which the State of Ohio appropriated $200,000 for its construction.

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.
