State Senator Calls for Fairness to Alabama Franchisees

When he was a franchise owner, Alabama state senator Chris Elliott (R) experienced first-hand the lop-sided relationship that is all too common between franchisors and franchisees. Now a senator, he wants to do something about it.

He writes:

Unfortunately, it turned out that my franchisor was not interested in the long-term success of my business. They were interested in corporate profits, regardless of how it impacted the small business owners who operated their franchises.
