As promised, the registration pages for the 2018 DDIFO National Conference opened earlier this week for franchisee attendees as well as Business Member exhibitors. The Conference will be held earlier than usual this year – June 11 & June 12, so as not to conflict with Dunkin’s convention in September – at the Harrahs New Orleans Hotel & Casino in New Orleans, Louisiana! Although we’re still completing our formal program agenda, specific presentations will include: the Next Generation Store – What to Expect with the Opening! In addition, the Butter-Margarine Summit will include a detailed legal discussion and guidance for franchise owners on how to respond to class action lawsuits. And, Attorney Robert Zarco will present on an important California win over El Pollo Loco on the issue of encroachment. There’s still much more that we’re pulling together, so register for the 2018 DDIFO National Conference today and while you’re at it, why not book your hotel reservations for Harrahs Hotel & Casino in the DDIFO room block, available from Sunday June 10 through Tuesday, June 12, at the low rate of only $159 per night! We’re working hard completing an outstanding program of speakers and timely presentations and we’ll look forward to having many Dunkin’ franchise owners joining us in New Orleans – The Big Easy on June 11 & 12!
