When you bought your franchise you were probably filled with confidence. After all, you had a business of your OWN supported by a proven brand…
Unfortunately, things don’t always turn out the way we hope. If your franchisor feels more like a competitor and creditor than a supportive mentor, then it’s time to speak up!
As part of our 20th Anniversary celebration, the AAFD is waiving our initiation fee for all friends old and new, a $50 savings!
The American Association of Franchisees & Dealers (AAFD) was created to give franchise owners a voice. The goals of our organization are defined by our commitment to Total Quality Franchising, and our development of the Fair Franchising Standards and the Franchisee Bill of Rights.
Benefits of the AAFD
As a member of the AAFD, you are part of the world’s oldest and most respected generic franchisee association. You’ll have access to a treasure trove of educational materials, such as the AAFD Franchisee Voice, Road Map to Selecting a Franchise, Franchise Buyer resources and much more.
The AAFD also offers its members significant discounts on the important services and products that they need to run their businesses such as: legal services, payment processing services, PR services, VOIP bundles, graphic design services, health insurance and more. Members also enjoy free conference calling and webinar capabilities.
The heart and soul of our organization, however, is our ability to organize and support independent franchisee associations as chapters of the AAFD. These associations are a powerful way to develop a positive and collaborative relationship between franchisees and their franchisors.
