Good (and Other) News! – February 2021

Good (and Other) News! – February 2021

Welcome back to our monthly news roundup. We’ve added a note of realism, calling it “Good (and Other) News,” to reflect the ongoing effects of the pandemic on franchising. So in addition to our regular roundup of business growth and change, we’re continuing with our new section on how businesses are coping with the coronavirus – for better and for worse – and what the near and mid-term future may hold.

Here’s your chance to follow the leaders, every third Tuesday of the month! And if you’re not doing it already, send us your good (and other) news here!
