Ignorant franchisor jerk becomes savvy friend

Please tell stories of what you did to change your ignorant jerk of a franchisor into a savvy friend. Be specific on what it was that your franchisor wasn't getting.

  • Did you help contribute to the problem? How so?
  • What did it cost you?
  • And how did you turn it around?

If you have not yet turned the situation around, then please give us your best guess on what can you do to change the franchisor's position. We are looking for constructive comments.
