Ed Sieber, owner of the Glass Doctor of Charlotte franchise, met with members of the North Carolina congressional delegation about health care reform and other issues important to the franchise industry during the International Franchise Association 10th Annual Public Affairs Conference in Washington D.C., Sept. 14-15.Sieber discussed the impact of health care reform on small businesses across the country with Sen. Richard Burr, R-N.C., and Sen. Kay Hagen, D-N.C. “We urged our congressional leaders to focus on reducing the cost of health care, improving the quality and efficiency of the health care system, and making health insurance affordable for businesses to offer to their employees,” said Sieber, who is the Glass Doctor national Franchisee of the Year. “There are more than 900,000 franchised businesses responsible for 21 million jobs and $2.3 trillion of private-sector output in the U.S. We will have a great impact on the economic recovery, so we appreciate having our voices heard.”

Sieber and Glass Doctor President Mark Dawson, along with more than 450 other business owners and franchising executives, met with the staff of the senators and representatives from their respective states. In addition to health care, Sieber and other franchise owners are concerned about the state of short-term financing, according to a Sept. 24 PR Urgent report.
