The latest insights and perspectives for the franchising community.
Running a franchise isn’t easy. It’s a complex, multi-layered business model. And while it’s possible to implement point solutions or build a home-grown system to support the many aspects of building and managing a franchise, the team at FranConnect saw a need to create something specifically for franchise businesses.
Before launching FranConnect Sky in early 2016, we spent time with our customers listening to their challenges, uncovering their wish list for franchise software solutions, and how we could elevate FranConnect to be a valued partner and trusted resource as they grow their brands.
Over the past few months, the franchising industry has come under attack, creating headlines around the nation. There are many threats to be concerned with – from discriminatory minimum wage increases to changes in joint-employer status – that could alter the franchise business model as we know it. The International Franchise Association (IFA) is working to neutralize these types of attacks and educate policymakers that locally-owned franchise businesses are America’s hidden small businesses that not only create jobs, but also provide incredible value to local communities around the country.
At the beginning of each year, when the bustle of the holidays has come to an end, I like to take a moment to reflect on the year prior and think about our year ahead. FranConnect had a great year in 2016 – we increased customer engagement, learned from our customers and partners, grew our team, attended events and tradeshows around the nation, and even streamlined our branding. This has me exceptionally excited for 2017, as we prepare for an even greater year ahead. Join me in a reflection of 2016 and a peek into what’s in store for FranConnect in 2017.
