Our Founder

Aicha is a 30+ year veteran in the franchise industry who grew threw the ranks of global brands like Domino’s Pizza, Popeyes and Olive Garden.  She ran a franchise brand, managed country-wide franchise organizations and even developed her own protype brand.  She has worked in domestic and international operations and lived in 14 countries throughout her career.

Aicha is the author of the Amazon best-selling booksThe Franchise Fix”, “The Multi-Unit Franchise Mastery” and "La Franquicia Exitosa".  The books are a compilation of the business management best practices of top performing franchisees in the US and around the world as well as her personal experience running small, medium, and large organizations.

Aicha founded the America Franchise Academy, LLC™ in July of 2016 after realizing the great need that many new and emerging franchise owners had.  Her passion now is to protect the American Dream of business ownership through franchising and to provide easy access to the knowledge, tools and resources that are missing in the industry.

Aicha speaks three languages and lives in Atlanta, GA with her husband and three children.
