Under the agreement, World Franchise Associates will offer consultancy services, marketing and promotion, and assist in selling territories to potential Master Franchisees in each country.
“We’re excited about the opportunities and enormous potential across MENA for both WFA and Reis & Irvy’s,” noted Paul Cairnie, CEO of WFA. “We’re confident that the combination of such a unique technology and business model and our regional expertise will result in exceptional growth for the brand.”
