Coalition of Franchisee Associations Welcomes New Member Jimmy John’s Franchisee Association

Washington, D.C. (Aug. 8, 2016) – The Coalition of Franchisee Associations (CFA), the largest franchisee-only association in the United States, has grown its membership by welcoming the Jimmy John’s Franchisee Association (JJFA).

"We welcome the addition of the Jimmy John's Franchisee Association,” said Keith Miller, CFA chairman. “Franchisees are the ones investing, supporting and employing in our local communities. While we often are viewed as competitors, or from different lines of business, franchisees have many common issues that we can best solve by joining forces and working together."

The JJFA is comprised of 600 total franchisees with 2,500 locations, with an average of 15 employees per location.

“As someone who runs an association, I understand the tremendous value an association can provide to their members,” said Brad Lowry, JJFA chair. “With CFA being a franchisee-only association, I knew that our membership and efforts would directly impact the lives of franchisees across this country. I know Jimmy John's franchisees will benefit from the collective knowledge of CFA, their efforts, and efforts of their members over the years to come.”

The CFA’s continued growth is a testament to CFA’s efforts to unify franchisees, provide educational tools to the franchisee community and promote pro-franchisee legislation both in Washington, DC and across the country.
