Good, Bad, and Other News! – September 2021

Good, Bad, and Other News! – September 2021

Welcome back to our monthly news roundup. It’s a mixed bag these days, with the optimism of summer’s business reopenings dampened by the tidal wave of Covid’s delta variant cases, especially in the South and in states with Republican governors. (No politics here, just going by the numbers!) But franchising carries on with growth and expansion as it always has, despite all the “anti’s.” Just say yes!

Here’s your chance to follow the leaders, every third Tuesday of the month! And if you’re not doing it already, send us your good (and other) news here!
