AAHOACON22 WILL USHER IN A NEW ERA.
This month, the 2022 AAHOA Convention & Trade Show will bring together the industry for education, networking, and dealmaking. However, it also is the time during which members will elect the 2022-2023 Board of Directors and Vice Chairman Nishant (Neal) Patel will become AAHOA Chairman of the Board. The AAHOA elections are always electric and momentous, filled with excitement and, sometimes, big surprises.

AAHOA UPDATES ITS 12 POINTS OF FRANCHISING
In 1998, AAHOA identified certain best practices for the hospitality franchise system. AAHOA called those best practices the 12 Points of Fair Franchising (“12 Points”). AAHOA has continuously updated the Points to reflect business changes and the long-term, mutually beneficial relationship between industry franchisors and franchisees. The revised 12 Points continues this mission as an educational primer for AAHOA Members, future hospitality franchisees, and hospitality franchisors to discuss and use to continue designing, developing, and implementing best-in-class, mutually beneficial franchise systems.
