State Franchise Registration Status and Franchise Laws

District of Columbia

Registration or Filing Required? No
Business Opportunity Laws? No

The District of Columbia is not a franchise registration state nor a franchise filing state, so you may offer or sell your franchise without registering or filing your Franchise Disclosure Document (“FDD”) with the District, provided that you are compliant with the Federal Franchise Rule.

Fun Fact: Darth Vader’s head is attached to the National Cathedral as a gargoyle grotesque. No joke.
