As Governor Romney mentioned last week in Tampa, this country needs jobs, jobs, jobs…and lots of them. Fortunately, we have lots of jobs in franchising—nearly 18 million to be exact. As IFA attended both RNC and DNC Conventions in Tampa and Charlotte the past two weeks, we hosted events to highlight the role franchising plays in the economy, speaking with members of the media and mingling with lawmakers and candidates to discuss IFA’s Franchise Jobs agenda.
Below is a photo gallery of some of those activities and links to some of the media placements the industry has received due to its presence in Tampa and Charlotte.
