TORONTO, Sept. 01, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The Canadian Franchise Association (CFA) and World Franchise Network (WFN) are thrilled to announce their recent partnership. The collaboration between the CFA and the World Franchise Network is the first international relationship that exists between the CFA and an organization outside of North America.
The World Franchise Network was created by Global Franchise in 2020 with the mission to bring together franchise associations and trade bodies under one roof to encourage and foster greater connectivity between franchising nations.
Canada is one of the leading franchise markets worldwide, contributing over $120 billion each year to the Canadian economy*. The addition of the CFA to the growing World Franchise Network brings the number of WFN member organizations across the globe to 14.
“We set up the World Franchise Network to build bridges between the world’s leading franchise authorities,” says Richard Davies QFP, Advertising Director for the DC Thomson Franchise Portfolio. “Canada is an exceptionally vibrant franchise market and the partnership with the CFA gives members opportunities to look beyond their borders for growth and collaboration.
“We’re excited to welcome CFA to the network and help give this leading authority – and its members – the opportunity to be part of the worldwide franchise conversation.”
The CFA is a national, not-for-profit association of more than 700 corporate members representing over 40,000 franchise business owners. Its main goal is to serve people in the Canadian franchise community by providing support through advocacy programs, best-practice learning resources, growth opportunities, industry information and networking events. Even more, the CFA hosts an annual conference and awards gala bringing together the franchise community and sharing success together with its franchise systems.
“The CFA is excited to join forces with the World Franchise Network and connect internationally with the franchise world,” says Sherry McNeil, President and Chief Executive Officer of the CFA. “With Canada being a major player in the franchise industry, we aim to serve as a gateway for internationally-minded entrepreneurs so they can expand and benefit from Canada’s fast-growing franchise market.”
The partnership between the CFA and the World Franchise Network will further the CFA’s mission of Growing Together™ with the organization, working closely to share crucial intel and insights, keeping members informed on up-to-date industry stats, regulatory updates and more to strengthen the franchise community internationally.
