S.3548 has been introduced in the Senate that specifically takes action to assist small business owners from the effects of Coronavirus pandemic. We now have a starting point to work from and will do our best to keep you up to date on its progress and other legislation that impacts franchisees. The main points of this legislation are to get money into the hands of small business owners through disaster loans, penalty free access to retirement funds, and possibly grants. This is the legislation that starts to help us, and negotiations are happening now. The introduced legislation is at:

Franchisees need to take action immediately. We recommend you use fellow franchisee organization’s, the Coalition of Franchisee Associations (CFA), action alert to contact your Senator today. They have documented our (franchisees) issues well and put together an effective letter, and we appreciate their efforts. The link is:
