I was talking with someone recently who wasn’t totally familiar with IFA’s
blog. Officially, it’s described as:
“A blog with news and views from the International Franchise Association representing more 825,000 franchise businesses across 300 business lines, providing for nearly 18 million jobs and generating over $2.1 trillion to the U.S. economy.”
For busy franchise executives, it’s a haven for quickly finding information on a variety of topics affecting their businesses and the franchise industry. Take a quick tour and you’ll find posts that detail a recent ruling of the National Labor Relations Board that would negatively affect franchisees, learn the five reasons why you should attend the IFA Public Affairs Conference in September or how CKE Restaurants CEO and IFA board member Andrew Puzder, CFE, drove home the message about the harmful effects of joint-employers status on franchising before a recent U.S. House of Representatives’ panel. Use the search button to find those topics of particular interest to you and your business.
Recently posted articles include the association’s lawsuit against Seattle for equal treatment, IFA’s recent reports on lending and the economic outlook, as well as credit tax subsidies under the Affordable Care Act, among many others.
