Protecting Brands: IFA supports policies that ensure franchise brand standards are protected so that franchisee investments are protected and consumers can expect the same safety, consistency, and quality regardless of the business’ location.

Enhancing Opportunities: IFA supports policies that expand access to business ownership and enable franchise business employees to increase their skills, advance their careers, and prosper economically.

Improving Tax Policy: IFA advocates for reasonable, permanent, and common-sense tax policies that can help small businesses, including pass-through businesses, can open new locations, hire more workers, and better contribute to their local communities.

Promoting Healthcare Coverage: IFA supports policies that allow for quality, affordable health care coverage for franchise business owners and employees.
