As part of its ongoing efforts to increase the public awareness of the economic impact of franchising, The International Franchise Association has released new statistics based on its report, The Economic Impact of Franchised Businesses, Vol. 3, and the 2007 Economic Census. The web site (available at IFA – Report) provides information regarding the number of jobs and franchise establishments in the U.S.
You are invited to attend a complimentary webinar this coming Thursday, March 10, 2011, between 1:30 and 3:00 PM Pacific. The webinar, which is being co-hosted by Armstrong Teasdale and the Upside Group, focuses on the business and legal aspects of the franchise sales process.
A new advertising campaign by the International Franchise Association highlights one of the many economic benefits of franchising: job creation. The IFA’s Public Awareness Campaign is dedicated to touting the economic impact of franchising and educate lawmakers and the general public regarding the economic outlook for franchise businesses, as opposed to non-franchised businesses.
