More Franchises Seeking Charitable Causes
According to the Wall Street Journal, more franchise businesses are adding a new element to franchise owners, a designated charitable cause. The tactic known as cause marketing is a process where businesses link themselves to a special charity or social causes and raise funds through promotions and sales. The tactic isn’t new to big corporations like Nike, Home Depot, etc, but it’s beginning to gain popularity in franchise businesses. Having a designated charitable cause allows companies to unite franchisees in various markets, convey a consistent image, and boost their profiles and bottom lines. "It's increasingly popular among franchise organizations who are trying to penetrate local markets, who are trying to bond with their franchisees and who are trying to help franchisees to attract and retain employees," says David Hessekiel, president of Cause Marketing Forum Inc.
