We are so excited for the annual FranTech convention taking place today and tomorrow (October 19th - 20th)! This event is one of the long-awaited IFA (International Franchise Association) conferences of the season, allowing exhibitors, sponsors and attendees alike to collaborate, converse and educate their peers on the latest technology trends within franchising. FranTech allows people from all over the nation and beyond to come together and thrive by learning “what’s next” within the franchise industry. Our team is ready-to-go in sunny San Diego, California both days of the convention and we cannot wait to see what they will be learning throughout the next couple of days.
