Checking the Copy

It always a challenge to come up with compelling copy and eye catching graphics to portray and communicate the essence of a solid franchise system to potential franchisees through brochures, print ads, websites, store signage, and even radio commercial transcripts, but it is the non-creative aspects that are overlooked that can trip up an organization.
