International Franchise Association Business Network Meeting


Topic: How to Survive in this Economic Downturn 
Neither franchisors nor franchisees can afford to base business decisions on tortured analysis of past performance or on the generalities and fears inherent in conventional wisdom about the economy. Your company''s stability will be largely determined by your understanding of the "basics" - revenues, COGS, labor, occupancy, fixed assets and debt - and of the not-so-subtle differences between the views of these "basics" by franchisors and franchisees.
