AS A BOARD MEMBER OF THE DENNY’S FRANCHISE ASSOCIATION, CARL FERLAND CAN HELP END EXTREME CRUELTY

Carl Ferland is a Denny’s franchisee with a long history with the diner chain, dating back 50 years. He is also on the board of the Denny’s Franchise Association and a member of its Supply Chain Oversight Committee (SCOC).

A Food Logistics article from 2016 states that franchisees sign a purchasing agreement that designates the SCOC as its purchasing agent, agreeing to abide by and fulfill the purchase commitments made by the SCOC on franchisees behalf. This means that Carl Ferland has a significant influence over the products that end up in nearly all of Denny’s restaurants.

Currently, the diner chain purchases pig products from farms that keep pregnant mother pigs in cages so small they can’t turn around. Due to Denny’s refusal to address this extreme cruelty, a nationwide campaign is exposing this abuse and franchisees are facing the consequences through protests and harmful PR.

Ferland currently owns a Denny’s in Orlando, FL, hoping to make it the “best restaurant within the brand before he fully retires.” Yet, his legacy will be marred by the animal cruelty scandal plaguing Denny’s unless he takes a stand and addresses it now.

Take action for mother pigs

Let Carl Ferland know that animal cruelty is unacceptable and ask him to take a stand against it.
