Franchisee Associations: There’s Power In Numbers

Being part of an active independent franchisee association is a powerful way to improve the way your franchisor treats you. Franchisee associations, especially when seeking a positive and collaborative franchise relationship, can effectively level the playing field in a franchise system by joining franchisee voices in common cause.

Launching your franchisee association as a chapter of  The American Association of Franchisees and Dealers (AAFD) is the most efficient and cost effective way to quickly and easily form your franchisee association. With the expert organizational guidance and resources of the AAFD, you can bring your fellow franchisees together to strengthen your voice and make sure your franchisor is listening.
