Yet, how often have you found yourself scrambling to negotiate a renewal in the last couple of months or weeks before the last day? If you're waiting until the last minute to make the critical decision about renewing, and on what terms, you're clearly not dealing from a position of strength.

California has long been a key market for franchising, and its consumer-oriented culture has also made it one of the most active venues for regulatory and legal issues.

He grew up around the family tobacco business his grandfather had started in the 1900s, and went to college to prepare to be part of it.

Building customer loyalty is no easy task in today's highly competitive business world where consumers will change brands or products to save even a few pennies. Businesses from mom and pop operations to multi-national conglomerates are routinely looking for new and unique ways not only to recruit customers, but to turn them into loyal, repeat shoppers who also spread the word.
