The AFA And The Franchise Show 2016
A really successful launch event ...
In February, we launched The Approved Franchise Association at The Franchise Show 2016. We had a fantastic response from both franchisors and potential franchisees ...
We were really pleased to launch the AFA at the Franchise Show 2016
I was honoured to be asked to speak at a seminar giving my top tips on buying a franchise and at the show, I met lots of our members and many potential members; the buzz from the exhibition was just great.
We set Naomi up with a game to play - the good old Bruce Forsyth game of old, Play Your Cards Right - as we thought Naomi would be quiet on the AFA stand because our target audience was the exhibitors.
"We were really busy, with lots of people coming over for a chat and to wish us luck with the AFA!"
The AFA was set up to support the rapidly growing UK franchise industry by providing a credible and more affordable accreditation. We are a self-regulatory, voluntary body which serves its members, potential franchisees and the industry in general.
The AFA provides a complete support network for franchisors, large and small, offering membership, support and our seal of approval to eligible franchise organisations. You can download a copy of our prospectus here and we also have a wonderful new website so please take a look theafa.org.uk as well.
Thank you to everyone for all their support so far, we're very excited about the future with The Approved Franchise Association.
Until next time ...
