The Australian Franchise Registry, operated by Frandata, has formed a strategic and business partnership with the Franchise Council of Australia.
The strategic relationship will enable the FCA to access Frandata information for use in industry submissions, educational activities and to promote franchising's positive contribution to Australia's business landscape.
Access to FCA members, and FCA support for registration on the Australian Franchise Registry alongside FCA membership, will build on the already impressive list of registered brands.
The Australian Franchise Registry , is a voluntary low cost registration platform that enables genuine franchise brands to promote their commitment to compliance and signal the availability of other key stakeholder information.
Prospective franchisees, lenders and other key observers of the franchise sector can all search participating brands through the registry's free publicly accessible search function.
Franchisors can access further options including displays evidencing the availability of financier information and support of the Workplace Compliance Standard being developed in consultation with industry stakeholders. This standard sets out to clarify the respective franchisor and franchisee roles in achieving compliance with workplace laws in a franchised network.
