Carlson was named IFA’s 2023 Franchisee of the Year on Feb. 17 during the 64th IFA Annual Convention in Phoenix. 

The award is intended to recognize individuals who have empowered the franchise business model. Parent companies nominate people who have displayed community involvement and entrepreneurial skills, cultivated healthy workplace cultures, and supported fellow franchisees.
