FASA’s Franchising in Africa conference, held at the end of August became the litmus test of pent up feelings that have been swirling within the country like a tornado. This is just what the franchise sector needed: honest and open discussions as to the state of the economy, the threats of what just happened and what’s to come and most importantly, how the franchise community view their place in South Africa and how they plan to move forward.
Amidst all the doom and gloom was the silver lining... franchising is unstoppable and those that practice this phenomenal business format are determined to recover, regroup and reclaim their position as the most successful business mechanism of all time.
From local and international speakers came ideas, pledges and proposals and we have invited the Malaysian delegation to put their offer of franchising on the table. Don’t miss this.
Friday, 10 September starting at 8:30 is virtual networking time again!
