About Suppliers

As franchising has developed into a substantial community of businesses, the demand for various products and services has also developed – some of which will be specific to franchising and some of which will be more widespread.

Our Supplier category offers organisations the opportunity to engage with the bfa and its members through a number of channels.

Businesses that fall into any of the bfa Affiliate categories cannot become bfa Suppliers. Any business which franchises must first successfully join the bfa as a member before it can become a supplier.
