The Famous AC Roundtable Series

The AC Roundtables began in March 2020 when Angela created a weekly zoom call with franchisors who needed support, advice, and collaboration through COVID-19. These weekly, collaborative sessions have since been called one of the most-valuable franchisor resources of 2020 by the annual CFA Conference. AC Inc has expanded these sessions to include roundtables for small businesses, emerging franchisors, franchise marketers, and franchise business coaches (coming soon!).

The January 2021 Franchisor Roundtable sponsor is Benetrends Financial! We are thrilled to have Benetrends Financial supporting these sessions and helping us create a community for franchisors, franchisees, and business owners.
