Good News! - June 2018

As we wrap up the first half of 2018, the State of Franchising is strong. Consolidation continues apace as franchisors and private equity firms add new brands to their portfolios and holdings, new brands continue to emerge, emerging brands continue to grow, and domestic U.S. brands are casting their sights overseas. Yet with all this growth and change, it's getting harder to keep up! That's why we provide our "Good News!" monthly digest of selected news items on unit growth, investment and financial developments, international expansion, people, and milestones attained by franchisors large, medium, and emerging. Here's your chance to follow the leaders, every third Tuesday of the month.

So if you're not doing it already, send us your good news here.
