Independent Franchisee Associations

A REQUEST OF MEMBERS/GUESTS: If you know of an independent franchisee association that is not listed below, please add to our listing by clicking "add new comment". The list will be updated with your addition in our Franchipedia (Franchise Encyclopedia) as a tool to assist franchise buyers and owners.  

Franchise experts often advise that franchise buyers contact independent franchisee associations. Yet a quick search on Google shows little in listings. These associations can give insights into the realities of operating a franchise - both good and bad. And they can help frustrated franchise owners to use their energies constructively. To help, here is our list of franchisee associations.

For those franchisees who have good or just not bad relations with their franchisor, please review: Four Steps to Creating a Modern Franchisee Association

Please also contact michael webster at if you have questions or suggestions.  The most up to directory  at the IAFD's Directory of Franchisee Associations.  But I do add suggestions from BMM.
