Good, Bad, and Other News! – October 2021

Good, Bad, and Other News! – October 2021

Welcome back to our monthly news roundup. Feeling whipsawed by the pandemic? After summer’s optimism was dampened by the tidal wave of delta variant cases, there now is a feeling that the worst is behind us (except for the unvaccinated, who continue to clog the nation’s hospitals, especially in the South). But as we always say, and history has shown: franchising carries on with growth and expansion, despite all.

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!
