Franchising success with Quiet Leadership

How Quiet Leadership leads to success in the business word

In the early days of franchising, the mission was clear: Franchisors make their success off the success of their franchisees. Today, that premise is hard to find in many convoluted franchise business models, which are present to would-be-buyers in franchise disclosure documents. Many are over 300 pages, crafted by shred franchisor attorneys. Quiet leadership has emerged as a way for franchisees to fight back against these convoluted franchise business models.

Franchisees continue to face challenges today in successfully running their businesses. Many times seeing little results from the efforts of franchisors, franchise associations, highly-paid attorneys, and franchise regulators, those in control of their destiny. But a look back 25 years ago, when franchisees struggled with similar problems in trying to level the playing field, may shed a brighter light on meaningful solutions.

In 1993, the franchise community faced many difficulties, as the International Franchise Association (IFA) broke with 33 years of tradition and invited franchisees to become members at the direction of IFA chairman C. Stephen Lynn, CEO of Sonic, and to the disappointment of many large franchisors.

Franchisees are also fighting back in new ways, united with each other. Groups like: The National Jack in the Box Franchisee Association and the National Owners Association are united franchisees together. While big corporations got their paycheck and franchisees were on the forefront. Franchisees blood, sweat, and tears are poured into their business while these corporation sat back and watched. With assassinations, franchisees now have a seat at the table when it comes to decisions regarding their franchise.

Franchisees also have backup, the International Franchise Association is one of the oldest franchise organizations. While it represents both sides, it is time for franchisees to join together with the International Franchise Association to fight for better rights for their own franchises.
