“Teaming up with Yodle is a great way to start off the New Year,” said Franchise Dynamics President and Chief Franchise Officer Robert Stidham. “Many franchises have been hunkered down and focused on maintaining their business, but this year we are already seeing a paradigm shift and a focus on growth. Yodle will help our franchise clients generate even more leads and reach their goals as quickly as possible.”
