Mark your calendar for March 5th to attend IFA’s “California Franchising Day” in Sacramento. It will be a great opportunity for franchisees and franchisors to let the California Legislature know the major economic impact that franchising makes in the state. In addition to meeting with legislators and staff, attendees will also get to speak one-on-one with key policymakers to educate them on the franchise industry.
Here are some fast facts on the Golden State:
- 39 new California legislators were elected last year.
- According to the U.S. Census Bureau, there were 37,691,912 people in California. This is almost 12% of the entire U.S. population.
- There are approximately 83,000 franchised businesses and 925,000 people employed by franchises in California.
- Franchise businesses have an economic output of $94 billion in the state.
