The AAFD Celebrates Great Franchising at Its Total Quality Franchise Awards

The AAFD Celebrates Great Franchising at Its Total Quality Franchise Awards

On Tuesday, May 2nd, we put on our tuxes and dresses, and the AAFD rolled out the red carpet to celebrate significant achievement in the quest for great franchising at its Total Quality Franchising Awards Gala. The celebration recognized Griswold Home Care as the AAFD’s Franchisor of the Year, attorney Michael Garner for Lifetime Achievement among many other industry and association leaders. Attendees were surprised and entertained by an AAFD team cast (that included AAFD Chairman, Bob Purvin’s ‘Beatles’ impersonation) in presenting some endearing song and dance numbers. Then it was time to celebrate the AAFD’s Total Quality Franchising Awards in a beautifully set ballroom at the Renaissance Indian Wells Resort and Spa.

Was the Magna Carta the Very First Franchise Agreement?

Was the Magna Carta the Very First Franchise Agreement?

In 1215, King John of England signed the Magna Carta, granting, for the first time, legal protections and rights to his barons and noblemen. In effect, the Magna Carta was the result of the first franchisee revolt in recorded history. That’s exactly what I suggest in a great new feature article on the AAFD published by Blue MauMau, the premiere franchise industry publication.
