The AAFD is organized by the creation of trademark specific chapters for each of the franchise systems for whom we have at least five (5) franchisee members. Affiliated independent franchisee associations are also granted chapter status in the AAFD. The Presidents or elected chapter delegates of active AAFD Trademark Chapters make up our Franchisee Leadership Council, the equivalent of the Association’s legislative body.
A Forming chapter is defined by a managed chapter with fifty (50) or less active members and a Vested chapter is defined by a managed chapter with fifty-one (51) or more active members. To date, the AAFD is managing more than 50 Forming and Vested Trademark Chapters, with new chapters forming every month.
To date, the AAFD has helped over 80,000 businesses join together and fight for the causes that matter most to their specific brands!
Franchisees of the following brands have either launched their independent franchisee associations as AAFD chapters or have associations affiliated with the AAFD.
