World Franchise Council

The World Franchise Council (WFC) is the global organisation of franchise associations from all continents – except Antarctica. Currently, 45 members support the development and protection of franchising and promote a collective understanding of best practices in fair and ethical franchising worldwide.

The WFC’s vision is:

To be the leading source of credible information for and about the global franchise community, as well as being the pre-eminent forum for promoting collaboration and cooperation between national franchise associations.

WFC members meet twice a year with a national association volunteering to act as host. It is at these meetings where much of the work – and the invaluable exchange of information between associations – takes place. Associations find that hosting up to 50 of the leading figures in franchising from around the world has a very beneficial and positive impact on franchising in their country – at both a governmental and business levels.

All associations provide up-to-date information on the profile of franchising in their country, against economic and legislative developments.

This is particularly valuable because it helps WFC national associations’ members – i.e. franchising companies and their representatives – who are seeking to export.

The fraternal relationships between member associations can also play an important role by providing personal introductions to the key people in those countries.
