HL Set to Open Franchise Group
Another piece of very exciting news – HL is adding a franchise group to our suite of legal services as we close in on our goal to provide every possible legal and licensing service needed to run a bar, restaurant or cannabis business.
Our clients have become increasingly more interested in franchising as we are all re-examining how to make money in this industry. We think it could be a solid option for select clients with proven brands and reproducible concepts. If you’re into setting up operation systems, training, selling and logistics, give us a call to learn more about what it takes to become a franchisor.
HL is able offer franchise legal services because we are collaborating with the Franchise Lawyer GOAT, Harold Kestenbaum and the legal team at Spadea Lignana. Harold wrote the book on franchising (it’s on Amazon here) and he helped launch Five Guys, Sbarro and many more hospitality franchises.
Harold’s firm, Spadea Lignana, is one of the top franchise law firms in the country (we don’t ef around) and Harold and the Spadea team will be working with us and all of our clients who are interested in franchising their concept. Harold is a true New Yorker and he’s cool and he has deep knowledge about the hospitality franchising world.

We have heard from you that you appreciate when we poll our clients and illuminate the industry zeitgeist. In order to do that, we need your help. Would you please share your unfiltered opinions and send us your response to the following:
1. How was business in 2022? (Did your restaurants grow or make any big moves? Are you back to where you were pre-pandemic in terms of revenue? etc…)
2. What is your outlook for your business and the restaurant industry in 2023?
3. Almost 3 years into the pandemic, what are the most important lessons that you have learned about running an F&B business?
Of course, if you want to add anything else at all, please feel free to rant but keep the raving to a minimum. I can keep you anonymous if you like, just say the word. Please email your responses to me at [email protected] or just reply to this email.
R.I.P. – Comedy legends – Budd Friedman, Judy Tenuta and Gallagher; Music legends- Loretta Lynn, Pharoah Sanders, Jerry Lee, Gal Costa and Coolio. All who brought so much joy to the world with their humor and music.
Happy Thanksgiving from everyone at Helbraun Levey. We appreciate you and we hope to see you all soon.
Hang in there and enjoy the holidays,
