VIDEO: Franchisee Association Testifies to Massachusetts Lawmakers

Affiliates of Dunkin Donuts Independent Franchise Owners testified on June 29 at the beginning of a committee hearing regarding a fair franchising law sponsored by State Senator Brian A. Joyce.  Former Dunkin' franchisee Stan Furash discusses his experience of how his franchise was both unfairly and non-contractually terminated because his wife no longer resided in the same state as the store. Senator Joyce begins the testimonial, then Mr. Furah, followed by Florida-based attorney Robert Zarco, DDIFO president Jim Coen, and Massachusetts-based attorneys Eric Karp and Carl Lisa. (Time 22:52 min)

DDIFO is one of several major independent franchisee associations that supports the Coalition of Franchisee Association's Universal Franchisee Bill of Rights.

Testimonials by other franchisees and attorneys that are not on this video were presented during the day.
