Franchises can earn up to

$26,000 per employee

Franchise business owners, like you, could receive up to six to seven figures in refunds for the changes to business operations they had to implement during the pandemic.

If one or all of your locations or outlets faced some of the following disruptions, your business could qualify for the Employee Retention Credit:

  • Reduced or shifted hours of operations;
  • Full or partial shutdowns;
  • Limited capacity;
  • Interrupted operations;
  • Supply chain disruptions;
  • Reduction in service or goods offered to your customers.

  • Full or partial shutdowns;
  • Limited capacity;
  • Interrupted operations;
  • Decrease in revenue;
  • Supply chain disruptions; and
  • Reduction in service or goods offered to your customers.
