WASHINGTON (Nov. 4, 2014) — The International Franchise Association (IFA) recently honored two Utah franchisees with TBC Corp.'s Big O Tires program.
Franchisees Kory Coleman and Kent Coleman of Salt Lake City were feted by the IFA with its annual Franchisee of the Year Award.
“The strength of the U.S. economy significantly relies on the hard work of franchisees,” said IFA President and CEO Steve Caldeira. “IFA is proud to recognize the outstanding efforts of Kory and Kent with the Franchisee of the Year Award and thank them for their work in the promotion of franchising as well as for their daily contributions that not only showcase how local business owners propel the economy, but also foster community ties throughout the U.S.”
That message was delivered at the IFA's 15th Annual Public Affairs Conference as the organization recognized franchise owner-operators for “outstanding performance and contributions that enhance the growth and development of franchising.”
