The Territory will include a minimum of 40,000 owner occupied households. During the term of the Franchise Agreement, the franchisor will not establish either a company owned Kitchen Solvers business or another Kitchen Solvers franchise within the Territory or modify the Territory without written permission, provided that franchisees are in complete compliance with the terms and conditions of the Franchise Agreement.

Term of Agreement and Renewal: The length of the initial franchise term is 10 years. If franchisees satisfy renewal requirements, they may renew for continuing 10-year renewal terms.
