Local Milex Business Owner Recognized as Franchisee of the Year, Delivers “Franchising Votes” Message to Congress
CHICAGO – Milex Complete Auto Care franchisee Albert Daniel of Frederick was recently recognized for his contributions to franchising and honored by the International Franchise Association (IFA) with its annual Franchisee of the Year Award.
Daniel was one of 48 people nationwide, representing 31 franchise systems, recognized for their outstanding performance and the contributions they have made to enhance the growth and development of franchising.
“The IFA is proud to recognize Albert’s outstanding efforts with the Franchisee of the Year Award,” said IFA Chairman Jon Luther, Chairman, Dunkin’ Brands, Chairman, Arby’s Restaurant Group. “The franchising community is an important component of the U.S. economy due to the hard work of these exemplary individuals who have helped bolster the growth of the industry.”
The Franchisee of the Year Award is a major component of the IFA’s Public Affairs Conference, which recently brought more than 400 franchise business leaders together in Washington, D.C. to carry the key messages of franchising to lawmakers on Capitol Hill. During the two-day event, which was held September 10-11, franchise industry leaders met with over 200 congressional offices about issues important to the future of franchising such as tax certainty, healthcare reform and access to credit.
According to a study conducted for the IFA Educational Foundation by PricewaterhouseCoopers on the economic impact of franchising, there are more than 825,000 franchised businesses in operation across the country which is indirectly responsible for providing 18 million jobs and generating $2.1 trillion in economic output.
“I am thrilled to be given this honor and to do my part to increase awareness about how franchising can contribute to economic recovery and job growth. This is a truly humbling experience,” said Daniel, whose franchise has been servicing the local community since 2008. “As I look back, and more importantly look forward, I do so with a great sense of pride and optimism about what the future holds.”
Daniel’s Milex Complete Auto Care is located at 706 N. East Street in Frederick.
