Franchise owners, as a class, are the largest investors in the franchise industry.  However, franchisees also have the weakest voice with legislators, regulators, and leaders in the industry.

The goal of Franchisee Advocacy Consulting is to assist franchisees, franchisee groups, and franchisee associations to better engage franchisees in gaining a stronger voice and become a special interest group to be reckoned with.

Franchisee Advocacy Consulting is focused on assisting franchisees only towards their goals and will not be conflicted by representing other interest groups.
