IFA's Franchisee Benefits

franchisee small business owner

IFA is the expert partner to guide you in solidifying and growing your brand. An IFA membership will integrate you into the highest levels of the franchise business model.  Whether you are a single- or multi-unit franchisee, you will be connected to a valuable breadth of unique opportunities and resources.  

You’ll have close access to franchisors and suppliers, gaining insights and building relationships that will change the course of your business. Franchisees are actively represented in all IFA committees, programs, and activities. You will enhance all aspects of your business and brand by seizing these opportunities to serve amongst the most prominent influencers in franchising.

To keep our members a step ahead of the game, IFA provides the most current, relevant, and tailored thought leadership, news, and developments in franchising. IFA’s political advocacy team will directly connect you to the legislation that affects your business’ bottom line and environment.

IFA is here to help you protect yourself and your business. We’ve partnered with prominent, trusted legal partners to supply a compliance toolkit that will equip all IFA members to stay on the right side of employment and business law. Similarly, we’ve partnered with Bank of America to offer group 401k rates, empowering you to be the best boss you can be.

And because IFA values the active participation of our franchisee members, we offer discounted rates to our conventions, certification program, and educational events.
