Northern Illinois Franchise Association
All Points PR founders Jamie & Lauren Izaks co-found Northern Illinois Franchise Association
In the spirit of promoting franchising and ensuring its future success, All Points PR founders Jamie and Lauren Izaks founded the Northern Illinois Franchise Association (NIFA) last year alongside friend and colleague Andrew Bleiman, managing attorney with Marks & Klein, one of America’s leading law firms focused on the franchise industry with a Chicago office. Dedicated to supporting the individuals and businesses in franchising at the franchisor, franchisee and supplier level, NIFA is committed to promoting, enhancing and fostering the success of franchisors and franchisees in Illinois through communication, political advocacy, networking, support services and educational programs.
Additionally, through an ongoing partnership with the International Franchise Association, the organization aligns closely with the Chicago-area Franchise Business Network.
As one of the nation’s most prolific franchise markets, Chicago is already an area of interest to most franchises. We invite all interested parties to attend NIFA’s events, featuring speakers and panels that speak directly to parties interested in growing in the Chicago area. The relatively small size of NIFA provides an intimate networking opportunity to form mutually beneficial relationships.
Past NIFA events have included esteemed keynote speakers and panel discussion members including IFA CEO and President Steve Caldeira and Kona Ice CEO and founder Tony Lamb, as well as a variety of the nation’s franchise business superstars. Each luncheon serves as an excellent networking and educational opportunity for the brightest minds of Chicago’s franchising community as well as a chance to mix and mingle with influential thought leaders in the industry.
