The Franchise Action Network (FAN) is a strategic initiative of the International Franchise Association. Locally-owned franchises are America’s hidden small businesses.
The franchise industry is under unprecedented attack on the public policy front and the IFA has been leading the fight to protect the franchise industry. From discriminatory minimum wage increases to changes in federal regulations that would recast franchisors as employers of their franchisees' employees, the franchise business model has never come under assault like this in its history. In order to defend the franchise model against these existential threats, franchise businesses need to come together and speak with one, consistent, strong and collective voice on behalf of the industry.
As part of IFA’s efforts to neutralize these attacks and educate policymakers that locally-owned franchise businesses create jobs and provide incredible value to local communities, we’ve created the Franchise Action Network (FAN). The FAN is IFA’s grassroots network of franchisees, franchisors and suppliers who are interested and willing to get involved in the conversation and engaged on legislative issues at the federal, state and local levels. By joining together to form the FAN, we seek to create jobs and strengthen America’s economy!
Through the FAN, the franchise industry will seize control of the debate, build our network of grassroots supporters, and educate policymakers and the public about the benefits of franchising.
By joining together in the FAN, we can help to ensure that the franchise model remains a critically important part of the overall U.S. economy. Join the FAN today!
