Previous work on the regulation of termination clauses in franchise contracts has ignored the ability of parties to contract around state law. Using data on two national fast-food restaurants, we find that Washington, D.C.'s termination restriction which did not restrict choice-of-law provisions had little systematic effect on business practice, while Iowa's termination restriction which did prohibit choice-of-law provisions had a large negative effect on franchising.
