dc.description.abstract In 21st century business format franchising, the search for solutions has taken the legislature and the courts into the areas of unconscionable conduct and good faith. To date these concepts have lacked the ability to curtail franchisor opportunism in exercising contract-granted discretions. Similar difficulties afflict administrative law approaches to good faith, lawfulness and rationality, errors of law and fact finding, and fairness — criteria against which contract-based discretions have been appropriately exercised by franchisors. We examine franchising cases against the administrative law approaches, acknowledging doctrinal differences (as well as similarities) and conclude that a common body of principle underlies both areas. This allows a fresh approach to interpreting the exercise of franchisor’s discretions. en
