So, what’s the best way to search and download a franchisor’s FDD? The following state websites that maintain registered FDD’s as publicly available documents that are available for free download:

  • California Free FDD Search – This is a link to the search feature on the California Department of Business Oversight’s website. When searching for an FDD you’ll need to enter the legal / corporate name of the franchisor and select “Uniform Franchise Registration Application” as the application type.

  • Indiana Free FDD Search – This is a link to the FDD registration portal of the Indiana Secretary of State. When searching this site, select “Franchise” as the registration type, enter the legal name of the franchisor, and enter the “Effectiveness” dates that you are searching for.

  • Minnesota Free FDD Search – This is a link to the regulatory document search feature maintained by the Minnesota Commerce Department. Select “Franchise Registrations” in the area of interest dropdown and from there enter the franchisor information and select either “Initial Registration” or “Renewal” as to the document type.

  • Wisconsin Free FDD Search – This is a link to the franchise search portal of the Wisconsin Department of Financial Institutions. The search functionality on this site is simple and, in most instances, all you’ll need to do is enter the franchisor brand name. Once a franchisor’s information is retrieved you are provided with a summary of the franchisor’s filings with the state and at the bottom of the “Filings Details” page you are able to download the franchisor’s FDD.
