What Members Say

EasyMarketing

I have known the leadership team at the QFA for decades and can honestly say their commitment to the world of franchising is exemplary, The knowledge that you can and will gain from becoming a QFA member isn’t in doubt, I personally would recommend QFA to all those involved in the world of franchising.

Nathan Siekierski - Director - easyMarketing

Esemdee

We joined QFA in July 2020 right in the middle of the pandemic. Esemdee, our Multi-Site Social Media Management and Marketing tool was built specifically for Franchise businesses. We hoped by joining QFA, we could generate some business from the other members, but we never thought that it would turn into our best investment. We generated more business through referrals and connections from QFA than all of our other networking events combined. For anyone who is not yet a member, join. The support from the group and the management team is the very best.

"We work with a number of lead generators and have found our time, effort and money is spent wisely with Franchise-UK.  Joel and his team not only deliver an all-round service to suit you and your budget, but also work hard to generate a good flow of leads, some of which are exceptional.  We’re working closely with another of their high quality lead enquiries right now who has reserved his territory and is completing his due diligence.  We highly recommend Franchise-UK."

MAX WAX Franchise Logo

As you know MAX WAX are relatively new to the world of franchising spending many years perfecting our offering . We looked for some time to partner with a company that would take time to understand our business whilst providing sound advice along the way. We already had a fantastic franchise business model tried and tested and working well for for our business partners, we just needed to send more of the right people in our direction. We took the decision to put our faith in Quality Franchise Association's leads generation platform, we are delighted to have made this decision, the promises are genuine! This is just a quick email to express our thanks, we look forward to working with over the coming years

Tristan Green - MAX WAX

Andy Cheetham

'We joined the QFA simply because it is positioned as a non profit association, there are several trade associations in UK franchising, the BFA, the AFA etc etc but what I liked about the QFA is that it is managed by people who are, or have been franchisors themselves. There is no need to be charging franchisors thousands of pounds to prove they have their hearts in the right place and since no trade association is a legal regulatory body we felt the QFA was positioned very nicely to be a source of honest franchise accreditation that assists all parties concerned.'

Andy Cheetham - Lime Licensing Group

Ian Townsend

“Absolutely fantastic to be working alongside a team with such expertise in the franchise sector. The level of professionalism and knowledge displayed by QFA is extremely impressive. Coupled with their pragmatic and hands on approach to franchising they are a formidable team.”
