“We highly recommend WFA as they have the know-how, relationships and systems in place to grow quickly with the right franchisees”

On behalf of Little Princess Canada Inc. Board of Directors, we would like to express our profound gratitude to World Franchise Associates (WFA) for their leadership with growing our brand into new international markets.

We first worked with the WFA team of experts to review our franchise portfolio as we were having difficulties attracting the right investors. Within a few weeks, the portfolio was updated based on their expert advice, they then uploaded and launched a campaign using the new portfolio through WFA’s World Franchise Center Website & Investor Contact Database. Shortly after the campaign they set-up meetings with a list of shortlisted qualified investor candidates, facilitated the negotiations, payment and signing of multi-store development franchise agreement with a large retailer in Saudi Arabia.

WFA has been instrumental in our success and we look forward to a very bright future with them. For any company, large or small that is looking at expanding into new markets, we highly recommend partnering with WFA as they have the "know-how", "relationships", and "systems" in place to grow quickly with the right franchisees.

Saladworks (USA) World Franchise Associates has proven to be invaluable to Saladworks’ international development efforts. As a relative newcomer to international franchising we needed to partner with a firm that could not just provide franchise leads, but one who could guide our franchising efforts. In franchising it’s not simply about putting a deal together, it’s about the process of identifying the RIGHT franchisee. WFA has worked tirelessly to help us grow our business smartly. We look forward to their continued guidance as we further expand in the Middle East and into Russia.

“...working with WFA for over 2 years. During that time, they have been instrumental to our international growth.”

The Smoothie Factory (USA) It is with great pleasure that I am recommending World Franchise Associates to you. As the Founder and President of Smoothie Factory, I have been working with World Franchise Associates for over 2 years now. During that time, they have been instrumental to our international growth. To date, they have directly assisted our brand with finding, qualifying, communicating, and negotiating on our behalf with master franchisees for the Western, Central, and Northern provinces of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Qatar, and the UAE. In addition, we are currently working towards completing several master franchise agreements for other markets. Prior to partnering with World Franchise Associates, we attempted to ‘close’ on international opportunities ourselves. However, we were never successful. In hindsight, it was because we lacked the knowledge of the market, culture and customs, and negotiating norms - all areas that World Franchise Associates delivers. Their advice during our discussions with potential master franchisees has been invaluable and has made all the difference in the world in such a short amount of time. We have tried many broker agencies in the past, however, World Franchise Associates is one of the few that actually delivers. When we first contacted their organization, they let us know they were much more than just a brokerage company and today we fully understand. It is for these reasons and more that we would genuinely recommend World Franchise Associates to your organization.

I am pleased to announce that we have signed a 14 country franchise development agreement for the Middle East. I feel confident in recommending Mr Paul Carnie & his team. He is not only thorough, but also easy to work with, and always willing to take the time to discuss my concerns and respond to questions.

“We signed our first international development in one of the richest countries in the world”

Camille's Ice Cream Bars (USA) We signed our first international development in one of the richest countries in the world with the help of the WFA! Their professional approach to bringing qualified brand partners is unmatched. The speaker opportunities and one-on-one meetings with decision makers have enabled us to promote our brand in some of the best markets in the region. The leadership team of the WFA brings a wealth of knowledge to the market and helped us identify how to structure agreements with potential partners that are mutually beneficial.
