WASHINGTON, D.C., NOV. 7 – The International Franchise Association (IFA) today released the following statement on the results of the 2020 Presidential election:

“IFA congratulates President-elect Biden on his victory, achieved through the democratic process of ensuring all votes are counted. We look forward to working with the incoming Administration, particularly on our shared goals of increasing opportunity and equity in under-resourced communities,” said Robert Cresanti, IFA President and CEO.

“For more than 60 years, IFA has worked with federal, state, and local policymakers to ensure that franchises can grow their businesses, develop their workforces, and give back to their communities. As American small businesses navigate through uncertain times, that work is more important than ever.”

As the world’s oldest and largest organization dedicated to the protection and enhancement of the franchising, IFA represents and advocates on behalf of America’s 733,000 franchise businesses who together employ nearly 8 million Americans.
