  • National Jack in the Box Franchisee Association - Allied Partner Agreement

    Annually, the NFA conducts an Allied Partner Summit, which is an opportunity for selected Jack in the Box franchisees to review, evaluate, and educate themselves on the quality of the food, equipment, or services of the Allied Partners or Sponsors. Also annually, the NFA conducts a national conference at which Allied Partners or Sponsors purchase booths allowing all franchisees who attend the conference on in-depth experience with the products or services.

    1. Agreement. During the one-year terms of this Agreement, the NFA agrees to identify and acknowledge Allied Partner or Sponsor, as applicable, by displaying its logo and other agreed upon identifying information on all NFA materials advertising either the aforementioned event, and any other time that communications are sent to franchisees which display logos. Allied Partners or Sponsors agree to provide all the necessary content and materials for use in the name and identifying logos for said materials.
    2. License of Intellectual Property and Non-Disclosure.
      1. NFA is the sole owner of all right, title, and interest to all NFA information, including NFA’s logo, trademarks, trade names, and copyrighted information, unless otherwise provided. NFA hereby grants to Allied Partner or Sponsor a limited, non-exclusive license to use certain of NFA’s intellectual property, including NFA’s name, acronym, and logo (collectively, the “NFA Property”), solely in connection with promotion of Allied Partner or Sponsor’s sponsorship of the Program. Allied Partner or Sponsor agrees that it shall not use NFA’s Property in a manner that states or implies that NFA endorses Allied Partner or Sponsor (or products or services). It is understood that NFA retains the right to review and approve in advance all uses of such intellectual property; which approval shall not be unreasonably withheld.
      2. Non-Disclosure and Confidentiality — Allied Partner or Sponsor will have access to both NFA and Jack in the Box Inc. confidential and protected information. Confidential Information is all information that is marked as such and all other information which a reasonable person would consider to be confidential. Confidential Information shall include, but is not limited to, information regarding the organization, its operations, programs, activities, financial condition, and membership or customer lists. During the Term, each party shall use and reproduce the other party’s Confidential Information only for purposes of this Agreement and only to the extent necessary for such purposes. Each party shall restrict disclosure of the other party’s Confidential Information to its employees and agents with a reasonable need to know such Confidential Information, and shall not disclose the other party’s Confidential Information to any third party without the prior written consent of the other party.
      3. Upon termination or expiration of this Agreement, all rights and privileges for use of the other party's Intellectual Property shall expire, and each party shall discontinue the use of such other party's Intellectual Property.
    3. Contribution Schedule. In consideration for the right to be an Allied Partner or Sponsor and to be acknowledged as such by NFA during the term of this Agreement, Allied Partner or Sponsor agree to make a cash contribution to NFA of twenty-three hundred Dollars ($2,300) per year, to be paid in a single lump-sum within thirty (30) days of the commencement of each Term of the Agreement. Further, Allied Partner or Sponsor will work with NFA to identify and provide in-kind products, services, and/or facilities to NFA, NFA's members, and/or in connection with NFA activities.
    4. Term and Termination. The Term of this Agreement will begin on the Effective Date and continue until December 31st of that year. The Agreement shall automatically renew for one (1) year Terms unless (i) either party terminates for any reason upon sixty (60) days prior written notice to the other party; (ii) one party notifies the other party that the other party is in material breach of its obligations under this Agreement and such breach (if curable) is not cured with fifteen (15) days of such notice; or (iii) both parties agree to terminate by mutual written consent.
    5. Relationship of Parties. The parties are independent contractors with respect to one another. Nothing in this Agreement shall create any association, joint venture, partnership, or agency relationship of any kind between the parties.
    6. Indemnification. Allied Partner or Sponsor shall indemnify and hold harmless NFA, its related entities, partners, agents, officers, directors, employees, attorneys, heirs, successors, and assigns from and against any and all claims, losses, damages, judgments, settlements, costs, and expenses (including reasonable attorneys' fees and expenses), and liabilities of every kind incurred as a result of: (i) any act or omission by Allied Partner or Sponsor, or their officers, directors, employees, or agents; (ii) any use of Allied Partner’s or Sponsor’s name, logo, Web site, or other information, products, or services provided by Allied Partner or Sponsor; and/or (iii) the inaccuracy or breach of any of the covenants, representations and warranties made by Allied Partner or Sponsor in this Agreement. This indemnity shall require the payment of costs and expenses by Allied Partner or Sponsor as they occur. This section shall survive any termination or expiration of this Agreement.
    7. Price Concessions for NFA Franchisee Members. Allied Partners may, to the extent not prohibited by applicable federal and state law, give consideration to a franchisee’s membership in the NFA when determining the rates at which they will provide products and services to franchisees. The foregoing shall not apply in cases involving system wide agreements negotiated by Jack In The Box, Inc., including, by example, the existing food distribution agreement with McLane Company, Inc. Nothing in this section shall be deemed or construed as requiring Allied Partners to offer products and services to NFA member franchisees at rates which are more favorable than the rates offered to non-NFA member franchisees.
    8. General Provisions.
      1. Binding Effect. This Agreement shall bind the parties, their respective heirs, personal representatives, successors and assigns.
      2. Governing Law. This Agreement shall be governed by and interpreted in accordance with the laws of the State of California, without regard to its conflict-of-laws or choice-of-law principles.
      3. Assignment. This Agreement, or the rights granted under it, may not be assigned, transferred or sub-licensed by either party without the express prior written consent of the other party.
      4. Entire Agreement. This Agreement and all its attachments constitute the entire agreement between the parties and supersede all prior agreements, oral or written, relating to the Sponsorship. This Agreement may only be amended in a writing signed by both parties.
