The subject of the study is the international franchise agreement. Research methodology. The research is based on the use of general scientific and special-scientific methods and methods of scientific knowledge. The dialectical method allowed investigating the definition of the international franchise agreement and its essential conditions. The comparative legal method was used to compare doctrinal approaches to this issue.

The methods of grouping and classifying formed the basis for separating the list of conditions, which are necessary for the conclusion of this contract, as well as the provisions that should be included in the content of the agreement. Methods of analysis and synthesis helped to study some parts of this agreement to formulate further conclusions. Practical implication. The analysed recommendations of scientists and lawyers, as well as the provisions of international regulations, can be used when concluding an international franchise contract.
