Notable honorees include Griswold Home Care as AAFD’s Franchisor of the Year and nationally recognized attorney, W. Michael Garner, who will receive the AAFD Award for Lifetime Achievement.
The American Association of Franchisees and Dealers (AAFD) announced today the formation of several new franchise associations as chapters of the AAFD. Each chapter will leverage the combined voices of all its members to establish an environment of collaboration between franchisees and franchisors. The five new chapters represent franchisees from: ARCpoint Labs, Coastal Angler and The Angler Magazines, SERVPRO®, Wireless Zone®, and Zippy Shell®.
Each new chapter has formed a steering committee and is actively defining its goals and recruiting members. Once each chapter reaches its recruitment goal, it will become an “active” chapter within the AAFD.
