What is the Accreditation Process?

A Franchisor applying for TFA membership will undergo a vetting process to confirm that their franchise offering is sustainable, ethical, and transferable.

Once a member, franchisors receive endorsement on our extensive franchise directory (Link Here) and regular communications via our newsletter which contains news items to spotlight different members each month by sharing their success stories.

Successful applicants are then permitted to display TFA accreditation on all marketing literature, thus re-assuring potential franchisees that their chosen business investment meets a set of primary requirements to assist in further assurance of a successful franchise.

TFA also actively share, on behalf of our members’, news, articles and events of interest, such as open days, via social media helping to promote their businesses and raise their profile to a wider audience of potential franchisees.
