Break out benefits of bfa accreditation

Becoming a franchisee is a major decision and one that should only be taken once you have thoroughly researched all your options.

Being able to identify proper franchise opportunities to start with is key and this is where the British Franchise Association (bfa) has helped thousands of people, by offering objective advice and education.

One of the best places for prospective franchisees to start their research is at a franchise exhibition, where they can gain advice, speak to the people in the businesses and hear from industry experts.
There are a small number of these exhibitions, including The British & International  Franchise Exhibition, that stand out from the rest as they are the only events that the bfa works with.

This not only means that the main seminars are run by the industry body, but it also means that all franchise companies have to pass an accreditation to exhibit, which gives visitors a much higher level of confidence. Membership of the bfa is also the UK’s recognised standard for franchising with only those brands that pass the strict accreditation entitled to use the bfa logo.
