As a business owner, your top priorities are making a profit and providing your customers with quality service while doing it. Unfortunately, franchisees frequently will get in the way of that to serve their own interests. By joining or starting a franchisee association, you and other associations can band together and ensure your voices are heard. Our nationwide franchise law attorneys can help you form, join, or utilize a franchisee association.
What is a Franchisee Association?
Franchisee associations consist of a group of franchisees within a franchise system who come together independent of the franchisor. Franchisee associations serve a variety of functions. The association allows franchisees to learn from each other about best practices that increase their profitability. Franchisee associations can also allow members to obtain better pricing with vendors on things such as telephone service, credit card processing, printing, website development, and many other services necessary in operating their businesses. The association allows the franchisees to pool their resources and gives them a voice with the franchisor. As the old adage states: There’s power in numbers.
