The British Franchise Association has been responsible for setting high quality standards for UK franchising since 1977 and through this process, the industry has grown to provide fantastic opportunities to UK businesses and people eager to invest with franchise brands, such as those belonging to ServiceMaster, amongst others.
Joining the bfa is no mean feat. In order for our brands to receive the prestigious ‘member status’, we had to apply to demonstrate that our brands meet the four key criteria: that the businesses are viable, franchisable, ethical and fully disclosed.
All of our applications were successful, as such, our brand ServiceMaster Clean is one of the founding members of the bfa, closely followed by Merry Maids, TruGreen, Furniture Medic as full members and finally Rosemary Bookkeeping as an affiliate member.
Considerable resources and unwavering commitment from the whole group of ServiceMaster brands means that we have sustained our membership with the bfa over the last 23 years. Our continued commitment ensures that our franchise brands add value to the franchise industry, through offering fair and profitable franchise opportunities to our franchise owners.
We have further invested in to the bfa by enrolling members of our support team on to the industry recognised, Qualified Franchise Professional course to help them to learn sound theory, to complement our company knowledge and engage in best practice with other franchisors and franchisees.
As we continue to develop our brands, we will do so in line with the bfa code of ethics, helping to ensure that the franchise sector remains a great place to invest.
