The franchisee must attend, or cause one of the managerial personnel (satisfactorily to the franchisor) to attend, and successfully complete the Training Program as well as any other seminars, sessions, programs, consultations, and advanced instructional modules that the franchisor deems necessary. The franchisor may provide personal consultations, if the franchisor can reasonably accommodate. The franchisor may periodically introduce new methods and materials through personal consultations and group seminars. The franchisor may consult with franchisees on business and operational problems and analyze sales, marketing and financial data.
