JOIN THE AC ROUNDTABLES

In March 2020 Angela created a weekly zoom call with franchisors who needed support, advice, and collaboration through the changes that COVID-19 brought for business owners. These weekly, collaborative sessions have since been called one of the most-valuable franchisor resources of 2020 by the annual CFA Conference. 

The AC Roundtables are no longer strictly for discussing COVID-19 pivots, but they have maintained their intimate, trusting, collaborative energy. As business owners realized how invaluable regular discussions with peers can be in all stages of business AC Inc expanded these sessions to include roundtables for emerging franchisors, franchise marketers, franchisees, and franchise business coaches.

“These roundtables bring together franchise systems of all shapes and sizes to talk about everything from PPP loans to Fran Dev and everything in between. They have been INCREDIBLY insightful and we’re already implementing some ideas that I may have ‘borrowed’ as a result of these.”

Jonathan Thiessen, Chief Development Officer at Home Franchise Concepts

“Our internal marketing team has created content that digs into the why and how behind our customer experience from our conversations in the Franchise Marketing Roundtables.  I encourage you to join!”

Larisa Walega, VP Marketing at Ziebart

“When I heard about the AC Roundtables I jumped at the opportunity. The chance to get on a call each week with high-level franchisors and get answers to things like how to run virtual conferences and leadership communication is something I am very thankful for.”

Christina Chambers, Executive VP, Franchise Development at InXpress

YOU ARE THE EXPERT

The AC Inc philosophy is that each of YOU are the expert in your industry. We see countless webinars where one person does the talking and everyone checks their email in the background – so we created something different. Each roundtable is facilitated by AC Inc with the purpose of cultivating discussion amongst you – the industry professionals. We keep the engagement rolling with questions, key takeaways, notes, and high-level facilitation, but it’s your job to ask questions and share ideas!
