IFA Awards Program

People, News & Events

Background

The IFA major awards are intended to identify and recognize publicly those individuals who have contributed most to making franchising the acknowledged leader in distribution methods. By publicizing the accomplishments of those pioneers who introduced many new innovations while developing successful systems, it was hoped a new generation of leaders would be inspired to reach those same high levels of accomplishment. IFA Members and non-past award winners are eligible for nomination each year.

Nominations for the 2021 award cycle have now closed for Hall of Fame, Entrepreneur of the Year, Bonny LeVine, Ronald Harrison and Franchisee of the Year awards. If you have any questions, please reach out to Katelyn Russell - krussell@franchise.org.
