Why the Conference is focused on Making Metrics Matter

A metrics revolution is happening in franchising. The transparent sharing of data is no longer an option - it is essential for franchisee and franchisor success.

Franchisees that focus on their numbers are significantly more successful. This reduces stress and makes life better for everyone, including you!

Franchisor operations teams need to advance their skills.  Especially in how to engage franchisees in benchmarking programs, Performance Groups and meaningful business conversations.

This is a dynamic area with new trends constantly emerging . To maintain confidence and credibility, field teams need to keep up to date with best practice.

There is a huge opportunity in most networks to improve franchisee performance. Our hope is the Conference will equip and inspire you with tools you can use immediately to protect your franchisees from decline and achieve better results.

No matter how experienced you are in franchising, if your role involves working with franchisees to improve their performance, you need to be part of this special event.
