Suppliers of goods to the franchise industry, interested in attracting new clients and building a strong network in the industry are invited to join the Association as members.

 

The Franchise Association of South Africa is a non-profit organisation in existence since 1979 and the only recognised representative body for franchising in South Africa.

 

It has an extensive database and regularly markets to the database, stakeholders and the public at large thus providing an ideal platform for good supplier members to market their products. On request, members could be provided with direct access to decision makers within the franchise industry as well as access to the Association’s exclusive member contact information where permission has been obtained.

Submission of the application

Once the online application form has been submitted a pro-forma invoice would be raised for the annual membership fees which currently amounts to R17 073.00 excluding VAT.  The pro-forma invoice is sent to the applicant’s duly authorised contact person for payment.

 

Approval of the membership application

Upon receipt of the membership fee payment as well as the completed online application form, the application would be considered for approval.  Once approved, the duly authorised person of the applicant company would be informed of the membership application’s approval by way of a welcome letter as well as the association’s Corporate Identity information.  The relevant contact information supplied by the applicant company is then added to the member database with immediate effect to ensure regular member communication is maintained.

 

Applications rejected

Should an applicant not comply with the requirements of the membership application process as listed under “Required Application Documentation” within a maximum of 3 months of first having submitted the application, the application would be rejected and deemed unsuccessful.

 

In the event of an unsuccessful or rejected application, the Association would refund a portion of the membership fees paid by the applicant, minus an administration fee of R3,500 excluding VAT. The once-off legal fee paid by the applicant (if applicable) is not refundable.

Once application has been received our admin team
will invoice you to make payment.
