Quark Joins the International Franchise Association

Denver - 2/14/2011 - Quark announced today that it has joined the International Franchise Association (IFA), the world’s oldest and largest organization representing franchising worldwide. IFA’s mission is to protect, enhance, and promote franchising through government relations, public relations, and educational programs.
