Good News! - November 2018

Good News! - November 2018

Here comes Thanksgiving, and activity continues apace in franchising, both domestically and internationally. It's hard keeping up with all the changes, which is why we provide "Good News!", a monthly digest of selected news items on unit growth, investment and financial developments, international expansion, people, and milestones. We recently added a section called "Regulation, Legislation, Politics, Etc." - and while it's not always "good" news, it's good to know. This month we're adding another new section on technology because of its key role in achieving sales goals and system growth. 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.
