International Franchise Association’s 2023 Advocacy Summit

During the month of September, members of our leadership team were proud to represent Location3, our franchisor partners, and the tens of thousands of franchise owners they support, advocating on behalf of franchising on Capitol Hill in Washington D.C. as part of the International Franchise Association’s 2023 Advocacy Summit.
Our colleagues Alex Porter (CEO), Crystal Ware (Managing Director), and Joshua Allen (V.P. of Marketing) spent time with our state and local
representatives educating them on key issues currently impacting franchising and what they can do to help all of those that are invested and involved in this incredible community. We’re proud to be part of the IFA’s efforts in promoting, protecting, and enhancing the franchise business model and look forward to continuing to work alongside them to ensure that our partners achieve success in growing their businesses in every local community they serve throughout the country.

Springboard 2023

Springboard 2023 in Philly did not disappoint. It was two days full of learning and networking with emerging franchise brands. Our team received valuable insight from seasoned franchise founders and leaders. Location3 was honored to sponsor this event for the second year.

A few highlights:

During the keynote sessions, we heard from the visionary founders behind 9Round (Shannon Hudson) and Blimpie (Tony Conza), as well as former Sonic CEO, Clifford Hudson. Hearing the inspiring stories behind their WHY is a reminder of how privileged we are to partner with so many iconic franchise brands.

Some of our favorite marketing sessions and panels included “How to Choose Which Franchise Partner to Trust,” “Using AI in Franchising Responsibly,” “Marketing Fund Magic: Creating & Evolving A Plan Franchisees Will Embrace” and “Creating A Customer Experience Worth Repeating.”

We can’t wait to see what is in store for next year’s event!
