Our History

The Franchise Association of New Zealand Incorporated 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.

Best Practise 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 because of legal and other differences between the two countries and the split was entirely amicable with both Associations pledging to work together on matters of mutual interest.

The Australian Association is now called the Franchise Council of Australia Ltd.

The Association represents those concerned with promoting high-quality franchising both in New Zealand and around the world. It is a member of the Asia Pacific Franchise Confederation and the World Franchise Council.
