Quality Franchise Association UK launch success
The Quality Franchise Association ( QFA ) is a new, not for profit, digital franchise association. The QFA philosophy stands for encouraging franchising for all. The QFA provides free information for both prospective Franchisee’s & Franchisor’s.
The QFA is a fully digital franchise association. It does not organise & is not affiliated with any franchise shows or exhibitions, it also does not arrange physical meetings for members. This is for several reasons as follows;
- Membership within the reach of all businesses – By being completely digital QFA can keep costs down. Full Membership ( Franchisors ) is just £350 per year. The QFA is also a not for profit company & is run by it’s Directors on a voluntary basis. All funds collected in membership fee’s go back into running the website & promoting ethical franchising.
- Technology – QFA believes in sharing ethical best practice but with modern technology members do not have to drive across the country, taking them away from their businesses. The QFA already has both social media groups & forums with direct messaging & is investing in more technology in 2019.
- Environment – QFA believes in protecting our environment & businesses should reduce their carbon footprints. Being a fully digital association membership of the QFA helps protect the environment.
The QFA was launched on 15th November 2018. In just over a week the QFA has had 17 membership applications & interest from around 80 other businesses. All members have to go through the formal accreditation process & some of the Franchisors that have been awarded membership include well know brands including ChipsAway, OvenClean & easyHotel.
Joel Bissitt, CEO comments “It’s been a whirlwind first week! I am delighted with how many applications we have received. I am very excited about our new partnership with The Forum of Private Business & by how many quality businesses have approached us as potential partners. Our member benefits are huge & provide practical & tangible benefits. I am in negotiations with several partners to further increase QFA member benefits & hope to announce these shortly. I would like to thank all our first members for their support”
