We are very excited about a number of the speakers we have confirmed for the 2018 DDIFO National Conference, being held June 11 & 12 at Harrahs New Orleans Hotel & Casino in New Orleans, Louisiana! We will be announcing the complete program agenda within the next few weeks and it is a great lineup of presenters on an important array of timely topics. Franchisees can register now at special early bird discounts and make their 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! As we told you last week, some of the specific presentations include: the Next Generation Store – What to Expect with the Opening, Butter-Margarine Summit, which will include a detailed legal discussion and guidance for franchise owners on how to respond to class action lawsuits, as well as Attorney Robert Zarco presenting the details of an important legal victory in California versus El Pollo Loco on the issue of encroachment. as Business Member exhibitors will want to secure their space early to ensure a prime location.
