Who Should Attend

Anyone on the corporate franchising side involved in driving product, service, equipment, and customer-experience innovation, new franchise development, franchise branding, and consistent technology adoption, use, and utilization among existing system franchisees. This also includes successful franchise owner/operators who serve in advisory capacities, as pilot testers, early adopters, and vocal champions of new system innovations and technologies. As well as operators of existing successful franchisees and start-up franchisors.

Attendance will include executives with responsibility for:

  • Franchise development
  • Franchise operations
  • Information Technology
  • M-commerce / E-commerce
  • Marketing / Branding
  • Operations
  • Payments
  • Purchasing
  • Strategy


If you are an executive or employee of a company that owns or operates restaurants or other foodservice establishments, you will likely qualify for registration at the lower “Qualified Attendee” rate.


Non-Qualified registration is primarily for attendees who are employed by an organization whose customers are mainly other businesses (B2B).

If you do not work directly for a company that operates restaurants or other foodservice establishments, we hope you will consider one of our many sponsorship opportunities that will allow you to send at least one representative to the Summit.
