The Franchise Association of New Zealand
The Franchise Association of New Zealand (FANZ) was founded to bring together members of the franchise community to share information and experiences, set standards and promote best practice in franchising. Membership is open to franchisors, franchisees, and master franchisees as well as professional advisors or individuals with an interest in franchising.
The Franchise Association of New Zealand was formed in July 1996. Prior to that, the Association was a Chapter of the Australian-based FAANZ (Franchise Association of Australia & New Zealand). The New Zealand Association became independent due to legal and other differences between the two countries and so was split into two entities, with both Associations pledging to work together on matters of mutual interest.
The Franchise Association of New Zealand represents franchise systems and individuals dedicated to promoting best-practice franchising both in New Zealand and around the world. It is also a member of the Asia Pacific Franchise Confederation and the World Franchise Council.
