Asian Franchise Academy - Set for Global Expansion
BUILD YOUR OWN FRANCHISE EMPIRE WITH AFA
Over the last few Years it has always been flattering when people have approached us wondering if I would franchise our consultancy and yes we do in fact. The truth is we were too busy building and running consultancy to worry about dealing seriously with these enquiries unless we come across outstanding candidates interested in launching their own consultancy in partnership with afa. Today we have grown our business in South East Asia, the Middle East, Canada and more recently launched in Africa.
It has taken eight years of successfully operating our franchise training and business consultancy to feel confident in talking publicly about our expansion plans and what role franchising our business might play.
A growing brand can really benefit from the stability of talented, invested operators driving individual businesses. But let’s face it, right now franchising is tough and too many brands simply too expensive and out of reach for many. Our focus is and should remain the home grown SME market as it is there where the greatest opportunities are. .
What is AFA?
We don't want to blow our own trumpet, but it is fair to say, afa is on the forefront in designing, developing franchise brands which are filling market gaps and offer investors great low cost, early entry opportunities.
AFA offers partners the opportunity to join one of the fastest growing professions - business coaching and business expansion with a strong emphasis on franchising. In 2012, AFA became the first group, offering all-inclusive business expansion and franchise training courses in Thailand.
AFA partners work with business owners, helping them in several areas including; Business Expansion within the Domestic and International Arena and business growth through franchising. The results are not only a more profitable and sustainable business, but also a dramatically improved life for our clients, making it a fantastically rewarding and fulfilling experience for AFA partners. Our business is to grow the business of our clients within the Start-Up, Retail, Education and Hospitality sector. AFA Country Master Franchisees are 90% owners of their consultancy. AFA will manage all global lead generation, and marketing programs without extra fees.
Start-Ups and SME’s – Markets of the Future
AFA is the leading franchise development company that represents and helps to organize and build the hottest franchise companies in Asia, Africa, the Middle East as well as Internationally. Our Partners hand select only emerging concepts with huge growth potential. With little territory available for the older brands, we bring fresh innovative brands that have great potential just as the big brand names you know today.
AFA has become great at the business of growing businesses through franchising- finding out what works and what doesn't work in every kind of business.
There are endless businesses in AFA’s target market and we see our strongest opportunities in developing franchise brands from an early stage.

The afa franchise and business consultancy, we are throwing away the word franchisee and adopting the term owner. This simple change indicates a sincere commitment to treat people with the respect they deserve and recognise the gravity of their commitment.
PEOPLE FIRST, MONEY SECOND
At its best, franchising is a recruitment strategy first and a capital strategy second. Growth for the sake of growth isn’t sustainable – growth that is focused on committed, talented people with aligned interests is. Our owner-recruitment at AFA will be focused on who will run the best afa business, not who has the biggest cheque book.
We have a great business model and our service is industry-leading - we want our ownership model to meet the same lofty standards.
