Rules of Engagement within Membership

Our community of members exists to facilitate open communication, sharing of knowledge, franchise intertrade and strong business development. As an organisation, it is our mission to protect franchising through representation. We influence success through high quality education and networking opportunities.

By joining franchisee membership, you agree to abide by our rules of engagement and values within membership to help maintain a culture that we can all be proud of.


The bfa reserves the right to terminate a member’s membership should they repeatedly or grievously breach the bfa’s terms and conditions of membership.

The bfa may also terminate a membership should the franchisor cease to remain as an accredited member of the bfa.


Any complaints about the bfa or franchisee membership should be made in writing and addressed to the Franchisee Membership Team. Complaints can be submitted via email to franchiseeteam@thebfa.org.
