I’ve been attending a few online networking events hosted by FASA, organised by Romany Thresher.  It is amazing how many franchisors are now attending as well as franchisees.  I’ve had two clients contact me having seen me at the event to assist them with redoing their work.  I’ve also learnt a lot on these sessions about social media marketing, the Popia Act, Disclosure documents. 
A definite must for FASA to continue.  Robin van Rensburg ~ Franchise in a Box

Funding of Franchisees is usually very difficult and cumbersome. The discussion will examine what you as a franchisor must do to ensure compliancy for funding. I will explore the different institutions and their requirements. There are many challenges that the franchisor faces due to the risk-averse values of funders.
