"Franchise businesses give back in countless ways each day, bringing people together in service to others and building strong communities. Franchising Gives Back shines a light on these exemplary leaders who are giving back and inspiring their peers to do the same." The Foundation aims to raise awareness in all franchising communities of the free enterprise system, upholding high standards, and continuing education.
