RAM & International Franchise Association (IFA) Host “Franchising 101” at the State House


On Wednesday, July 12, RAM joined IFA to host "Franchising 101" at the State House.  Legislators and staff heard directly from local franchisees on the benefits of the franchise model and its importance to the local MA economy. Panelists included Benny Omid, an immigrant from Iran who owns a Dunkin' in Allston, Carol Chin, who said she came to the U.S. with $20 in her pocket and now owns the McDonald's at Downtown Crossing, and Alvin Rasmus, who owns four Great Clips salon locations. "There are no McDonald's in Massachusetts owned by McDonald's Corporation. They're all, every single one of them, are small businesses," RAM President Jon Hurst told the attendees. "There is sometimes a misperception amongst government officials, amongst certain interest groups, that these are all big corporations, wealthy corporations, publicly traded, and they're not."
