A franchisee association provides a forum for franchisees to work more closely together to advance mutual interests. Many LearningRx franchisees already exchange ideas and best practices with one another informally. A franchisee association can help to formalize this such that all members can benefit. Some opportunities include buying of materials, sharing of ideas in training or business practices, and advocating for new product needs. Many franchisees unknowingly duplicate efforts in so many areas, and we need a mechanism to better coordinate these activities and share the results. As an association, we have created some content for staff development to assist in standardizing the quality of our product offering.
