In addition to our regular articles, news, and opportunities, we've also expanded our franchise resources and also launched our all-new local franchise sites for each state. Additionally, we have launched an all-new learning portal for entrepreneurs, franchisees, and franchisors called the Franchise Learning Academy. We also published our first-ever Technology Buyers Guide. On the conference side, in addition to our three existing conferences, we hosted our first Regional Multi-Unit Franchisee Summit in New York City.
