The AFA was set up in 2012 to support the rapidly growing UK franchise industry by providing credible and more affordable accreditation. We are a self-regulatory, voluntary body which serves its members, potential franchisees and the industry in general. Although we work with franchisors of all sizes, the AFA specifically provides a complete support network for the smaller franchisor, offering membership, support and our seal of approval to eligible franchise organisations. The AFA ‘franchise now’ exhibitions will showcase a wide range of franchise opportunities across several industries. It will be a day well spent for business people who are considering investing in their own franchise and are looking for inspiration and new ideas. We have chosen Milton Keynes as our first venue, not only due to its central, convenient location but also its reputation as a rapidly-growing centre of industry.
