Its Our Time: Partner for Success!

This year’s conference will be a crucial opportunity for franchisees and policy makers to share ideas about how best practices can improve the industry. During this 3 days conference we will continue to work together towards our progress in furthering Fair Franchising initiatives and attendees are expected not only discuss progress made on important issues like advocacy and legislative agenda but also discuss new laws that protect franchisees across all industries.

What will these conversations entail? Stay tuned because we have an excellent program planned led by incredibly talented franchisee leaders, nation’s top franchisee attorneys who want nothing more than sharing knowledge & experience across industries together.
