Last week we saw how franchises were giving thanks to veterans, and in this week’s Friday Franchising News we’re taking a look at how franchises are giving thanks all around for Thanksgiving. Thanksgiving Day is less than a week away and these franchises will be busy collecting canned goods, serving up free meals, rolling out menu feasts, and offering you the best holiday deals.
