Franchise Business Review, the premier market research firm for the franchise industry, announced today that ProfitKeeper, a developer of accounting and profitability software designed specifically for franchise organizations, has become a business partner and content expert for Frantopia, FBR’s social networking and business resources site.
Frantopia is the only social network of its kind, exclusively dedicated to bringing tools, services, and best practices to franchisees.
