Franchisees play a critical role in Arizona's economy, and it is important to protect their interests. That is why HB2404, which seeks to provide franchisees with greater protections against abuses by franchisors, is so important.
HB 2404, currently being considered in the state Legislature, would have far-reaching and harmful ramifications for franchisors, franchisees, workers and the Arizona economy.
