Accelerated Business Transformation Spurs Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory to Change to Annual Franchise Conventions
Durango, Colorado–(Newsfile Corp. – December 1, 2022) – Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory, Inc. (NASDAQ: RMCF) (the “Company,” “we” or “RMCF”), a leading manufacturer and international franchiser of gourmet chocolates and other confectionary products, today announced that beginning in 2023 it will hold its National Franchise Convention annually.
The 2023 Convention is planned for September on the Riverwalk in San Antonio, TX.
The event has been held biannually since 2000 except during the Covid pandemic.
The most recent took place in Indio, CA in September 2022.
“Accelerating business transformation requires frequent communication, collaboration, and gatherings,” said CEO Rob Sarlls. “The Company and its franchisees are on the same team. This was reaffirmed during our Convention in September and in the more than 20 in-store visits I have made over the past six months. We both understand the value of setting the pace in a rapidly changing consumer and retail marketplace. Achieving this goal depends on our ability to communicate and share insights with one another on a consistent basis.”
The 2023 Convention will provide an expanded array of educational seminars and hands-on workshops designed to help franchisees improve store operations, build employee and customer engagement, and enhance brand presence across all consumer channels. It will also serve as a forum in which to introduce new products and marketing programs.
Additional details will be announced in early 2023.
