A group of U.S. Tim Hortons franchisees has filed a lawsuit – alleging their parent company engaged in price gouging and equity theft.

The American chapter of the Great White North Franchisee Association filed the suit in a Florida county court – claiming Restaurant Brands International and Tim Hortons USA strips them of income and profit – through increased and improper franchisee fees.

The suit also claims the company requires franchisees who want to sell their stores – to first offer the business  to the company – for the depreciated value of the furniture, fixtures and equipment.

The GWNFA wants the court to declare the practices a breach of contract.

None of the allegations have been proven in court.
