Hi Franchise Fam!
First off, I hope everyone is safe and healthy. I know this is an incredible challenging time.
I wanted to share a few thoughts from the insurance side of these crazy COVID-19 times:
As we all struggle with responding to the COVID-19 pandemic, members of the franchise industry have the responsibility to give where and when we can. Spreading positivity during these unprecedented times has become more important than ever. As an industry, we need to inspire our franchisees to give back to move communities forward.
In the midst of an unprecedented crisis, it is essential that franchises strengthen their front lines.

As the country continues to reel from the COVID-19 pandemic, things are far from “business as usual” for many businesses. This has proven especially true of franchises and businesses operating in the service and hospitality industries. Thankfully, one company is using technology to restore a sense of routine for both franchisees and customers.
