Become a BFA Member

As the UK’s largest and longest-standing franchise trade association, we wrote the rulebook when it comes to franchise ethics and best practice. Our influence is also international through our membership of the European Franchise Federation and World Franchise Council.

Which Membership applies to you?


Applying for a BFA franchisor membership isn’t just a matter of us saying ‘yes’ or ‘no’. It’s a collaborative process between you, our team and our accredited advisors. Rest assured you’re in good hands, with people who care a great deal about your success.


Our network of Professional Advisors are a vital part of the support we provide to franchisors and franchisees. It’s our way of ensuring that the advice and guidance they receive is always of the highest ethical standard.


The supply of top-quality goods and business services is a cornerstone of the support offered to the industry, and we are delighted to work with suppliers who have the necessary skills and services to offer.


If you’re a franchisee of a franchisor who is a BFA member then you could become a member of the BFA too. We’ll look after your interests every step of the way. What’s more, your membership is FREE!
