It is built on a long-term relationship which requires trust and full support between the franchisor and the franchisee. Similar to any business relationship, franchise business is also exposed to disputes and friction due to miscommunication or other disagreements between franchisor and franchisee. In the event of disputes, the parties normally resort to type of settlements which are not burdensome to them. They tried as much as possible to settle it and often seek a commercial solution in order to avoid high cost and inconvenience of litigation process. In doing so, parties are more comfortable to overcome their disputes through mediation. Mediation is a voluntary process where an independent third party, called mediator assist the disputing parties to facilitate the negotiation in order to reach satisfactory outcome.
