Franchisee Membership Terms & Conditions

Franchisee membership is open to anyone who has signed a franchise agreement with a franchisor who is a current member of the BFA. Upon receipt of your completed online application, the BFA will confirm and send your welcome pack, providing access to all membership benefits within 5 days. 

The membership will reside for the period that you remain a franchisee of your BFA member franchisor. If you exit your franchise partnership please notify the BFA via email at 

As a BFA member you will receive regular updates to support your journey in franchising and by applying to join you are agreeing to be represented and contacted by the British Franchise Association.

The community of Franchisee Members offers you the opportunity to network with your peers. We want all of our members to communicate openly, learn from each other and trade with one another. By doing this we will see strong relationships build locally and nationally to help you have a stronger business. We also ask you to engage in the events and the opportunities we have to help promote ethical franchising.

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
