Fishman Canada launches in Toronto
Chicago-based public relations agency Fishman PR has expanded its operations into Canada by launching a new firm called Fishman Canada in collaboration with Punch Canada of Toronto. The agency is intended to service the accounts of franchise brands in Canada, particularly US-based brands with master franchisees in Canada as well as Canadian franchisors who want to recruit franchisees. Punch is the agency of record for the Canadian Franchise Association as well as several national franchise brands. These accounts will now be serviced by Fishman Canada. The agency will operate as a separate company located in Punch's office space.
"Canada has more franchises per capita than almost anywhere in the world," said Brad Fishman, chairman of Fishman Canada. "We see the opportunities to grow franchise brands and apply our 27 years in the franchise industry in a country where franchising is the 12th largest industry."
