IFA Announces Franchisee of the Year Award Winners

IFA Announces Franchisee of the Year Award Winners

The International Franchise Association (IFA) recognized “outstanding franchise establishment owner-operators,” at its recent Annual Convention in Las Vegas, Nevada. 97 individuals from across all industries and communities around the country were selected as Franchisee of the Year Award winners.

“Franchisee of the Year recipients represent the best in franchising,” said Matthew Haller, president and CEO of the IFA. “This is the highest honor IFA awards to individual franchisees, and these local business owners exemplify the power of franchising and its countless positive contributions to communities around the world.” 

The annual award recognizes franchise owners from IFA member brands whose outstanding performance and contributions help protect, enhance, and promote the franchise business model. Individuals are nominated by their parent company, and selected for their service to their communities, fostering a strong and vibrant workforce, opening the doors for career growth and entrepreneurship, and supporting their fellow franchisees.
