Henk Botha

Franchise Development Manager

Over the years Absa has remained a strong supporter of FASA and we are extremely pleased to be actively involved – for a second consecutive year - through our sponsorship of the monthly FASA Networking Breakfasts as well as the FASA Convention and Awards that took place earlier this year in April.

Given that financial institutions have a crucial role to play in the franchising environment to offer financial support, solutions and advice to either new franchisees wanting to enter the franchise market, existing franchisees looking to open a new franchise or franchisors wanting to expand or revamp their franchise business, our partnership with FASA has enabled us to positively contribute to the growth and development of the South African franchise industry.

Boris Leyck

Owner

Because we were new to franchising, one of the first crucial steps was to become a FASA member to make sure we set up and maintain certain standards as a franchisor. As a newcomer it also gave us certain benchmarks to live up to which we need to get recognition in the industry. Another value we get out of the membership is the advice and guidance from FASA and its members on various franchise related topics. Lastly we could not make a difference as a single franchise company but feel that belonging to a group of franchisors within FASA, important issues in the industry can be channeled through FASA which carries much more weight

Joint MD

In today's complex business environment it is almost impossible for entrepreneurs to remain current with changes to legislation and other influences that affect their day to day operations. The Franchising sector rates as one of the more complex business sectors as franchising systems are applied over so many different industries and is therefore influenced by more than the norm. As such Franchisors require the insight, analysis and representation which is forthcoming from an industry representative body such as FASA, which is is the watchdog of the industry interacting with government and other industry representative bodies to ensure that its members are protected from any possible change that may be to their detriment. As Hot Dog Café we appreciate the work that is done behind the scenes quietly and effectively to ensure that the industry, together with its members, continue to grow ethically and effectively in a very demanding world.
