The Franchise Trust & Companions
The Franchise Trust is a registered charity that was initiated by the British Franchise Association (bfa). It was established in 2012 and gained charitable status in 2014. The bfa is the only Member of the Trust.
The bfa’s Companionship award recognises individuals who have made an outstanding contribution to the franchise industry and the bfa. Only previous British Franchise Association Members, Professional Affiliates and retired staff are eligible to receive the award. Traditionally, it is the Chairman of the British Franchise Association who presents the award at the Annual Chairman’s Dinner in December. bfa Companions meet twice a year in London – usually in April and October.
