The bfa in the media

The bfa works with a variety of media to promote ethical franchising and provide objective and impartial advice and information for people looking to enter the industry, both as franchisees and franchisors.

With franchising designed to teach people without previous experience how to run their own business, people come into the industry from many backgrounds. This has supported a great growth, with nearly 1,000 different brands now operating in UK franchising (2013 NatWest/bfa Franchise Survey).

Because of this diversity, it’s important for the bfa to work with a wide array of media, both online and offline: regional and national newspapers, the franchising press, general business websites and publications, trade press and so on.

On this page you can find monthly updates of the coverage and news generated by the bfa in addition to articles supplied to the franchise press each month. Click on the links below for details:
