Last year’s AAFD Franchisee Leadership Summit and Annual Conference was a rousing success. We achieved a lot in 2019, but the fight for fair franchising is far from over! 

We need to keep the momentum going to further empower franchisees and protect the equity they work so hard to build in their franchise businesses. Join us this October in Mesa, Arizona for the AAFD’s 2020 Franchisee Leadership Summit and Annual Conference.
