Dear Franchise Owners:
On November 15, 2018, we sent out a request for all associates to please let us know if you would or would not be attending Convention 2019 that we are tentatively scheduling for March 7tth, 8th and 9th, 2019. As of the date of this letter, we have a total of 58 attendees from 12 different franchise owners. Based on this response, it doesn’t appear that the annual convention is an important tool for you, your associates or your business.
As you are aware, there’s a lot of planning and preparation that goes into hosting a convention. To do this, we need your commitment to attend as soon as possible. Again, I’m willing to do what I can to help offset the expense. All associates (local associates included) spending a minimum of three nights at the hotel during convention (Thursday, Friday & Saturday night), I will pay for one-night hotel expense. I will credit the one-night hotel cost to your parts account. This only applies to owners, contractors and employees.
I will repeat this again, if we as a franchise system are unable to have at least 200 attendees at the upcoming convention (including spouse and children whom are more than welcome), I will be forced to cancel the event. This will be the final request. I need to know your response by December 14, 2018. Please do your best to make every effort to attend this year. If it’s more convenient for you, you may also contact any staff member at headquarters by phone to let them know if you will be attending or not. We really would like to see each one of you in March!
