Not likely because of their husband’s pride and material success.
If anyone can “save” Tim Hortons from the pirates, I can.
- 10 franchisees/business partners (both partners, self-organized),
- introductory meeting at one of their homes (with 3 couples plus Les),
- confidentiality and exclusive agreement,
- $50,000 each deposited in trust for litigation fund,
- $5,000 per month per family (pre-authorized withdrawal), and
- a percentage on the end (vig).
Why I would want to work with any franchisee (ever again in my entire life) is a very, very good question.
“There is no reason why good cannot triumph as often as evil. The triumph of anything is a matter of organization. If there are such things as angels, I hope that they are organized along the lines of the Mafia.”

You will have chosen darkness.
You will be betraying dozens of families.
That you do not know their specific names, changes your future torment zip.
Get busy choosing light or get busy choosing dark.

If it weren’t franchising , what other mischief would you be into?
Try something new.
Just stop and abide with and in others.
It’s just so crazy it might work.

Franchisees need family unity when the clan meeting is called.

They’re so much more emotionally intelligent.
We need their strength, humour, and grace, boys.

We know through painful experience that freedom is never voluntarily given by the oppressor; it must be demanded by the oppressed.
In any nonviolent campaign there are four basic steps: collection of the facts to determine whether injustices exist; negotiation; self purification; and direct action.
We are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied in a single garment of destiny. Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly. Never again can we afford to live with the narrow, provincial “outside agitator” idea.

Franchising teaches many lessons to those of us with a selfish inclination.
