Good News! - September 2018

Good News! - September 2018

Well, we survived the summer and all it brought. Now as the first days of autumn approach, activity continues apace in franchising, both domestically and internationally. Consolidation continues, new brands are emerging, emerging brands are growing, and the regulations just keep on coming - and the midterm elections are right around the corner. So we've added a new section we're calling "Regulation, Legislation, Politics, Etc." It's not exactly "good news," but it's good to know about. It's hard keeping up with all the growth and changes, which is why we provide our "Good News!" monthly digest of selected news items on unit growth, investment and financial developments, international expansion, people, and milestones. 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.
