FASA TO HOLD ITS 33RD ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING

As FASA prepares to hold its 33rd AGM on the 22nd February 2012, it is interesting to note that, not only is the Franchise Association of South Africa one of the longest established franchise associations in the world, but it holds the flag high as the only recognized one on the African continent.  Looking back at the early days when a handful of forward-looking franchisors got together to try introduce some order in what was probably the most exciting new business format to come out of America, franchising in South Africa has come a long way and ranks alongside some of the most sophisticated franchise countries of the world.  According to Kurt Illetschko, co-author of Franchising in South Africa: The Real Story, the association was formed as an off-shoot of the then Johannesburg Chamber of Commerce – on the suggestion of one of its office bearers, Sid Matus, then CEO of Spar South Africa.  Some of the early members included Kentucky Fried Chicken (KFC), Wimpy, Juicy Lucy, Mike’s Kitchen, Minit Print, Jetline Print and Mend-a-Bath – most of those brands are still going strong today!

If you are a FASA member, why not make your mark and get involved in the future of franchising and FASA by attending the AGM and putting yourself forward to sit on Council.  Only by participating, developing and contributing to the growth of franchising can we ensure that this sector remains vibrant and dynamic and contributes to our country’s economic growth.
