State Franchise Registration Status and Franchise Laws

West Virginia

Registration or Filing Required? No
Business Opportunity Laws? No

West Virginia 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 state, provided that you are compliant with the Federal Franchise Rule.

Fun Fact: Fittingly, West Virginia is home to the Coal House – a building built entirely of coal in 1933. Ironically, it caught fire in 2010.
