Moms on the Run is honored to be named one of the 25 largest Twin Cities-based franchise companies in the United States. Minneapolis/St. Paul Business Journal recently featured Moms on the Run in their franchise listing, as well as in an inspiring story about how we are making it through the pandemic year here.
"They did a great job of spreading our positive message for business during a tough economic year," explained Founder and CEO Karissa Johnson. "I didn't get to choose everything they included in the article of course. They missed my emphasis on how awesome our franchisees are and how everyone's teamwork and positive attitudes are getting us through this challenging time!"
It is true: Moms on the Run would not be possible without our franchisees, our members and our sponsors. Thank you!
