My name is Linda Gaither and my address is 3200 Cherry Place, Muskogee, Oklahoma.
I'm calling in regards to the FTC needs to begin dealing with issues important to current franchisees. The problem that we have personally as franchise owners of a General Nutrition Center here in Muskogee we have encountered are dealing with assets, or devaluing of our assets, through encroachment. That is probably our main concern at this point in time. Also, the lack of accountability in franchisors. And if the FTC cannot begin addressing the issues of current franchisees, then I'm in favor of abolishing the Franchise Rule. Thank you for your consideration. Good bye.
