About us

The Franchise Council of Australia Limited (FCA) is the peak body for the $131 billion franchise sector in Australia, representing franchisees, franchisors and service providers to the sector.

Objectives

As the peak body for franchising, the FCA continues to add value to the businesses of its members by providing a range of services relevant to franchising and which represent good value. The FCA recognises that its members have different needs, and that different types of members should co-exist harmoniously. The success of franchising depends on successful franchisors, and this in turn, depends on profitable and happy franchisees. The Franchise Council of Australia works constantly to ensure that all activities and services which benefit franchising benefit the broader community – including franchisees, franchisors, employees and their local economies and communities.

Membership

Membership of the Franchise Council of Australia is voluntary, and is open to any organisation or individual involved in the franchise sector, including franchisees, franchisors, lawyers, accountants, banks, consultants, academics, and publishers.

For more information on FCA Membership and how to join, please visit the membership section of this website.

Structure

The FCA is a nationally incorporated not-for-profit association with its national head office in Melbourne, Victoria. It provides localised member services through five state chapters - one in each mainland state of Australia. Each state chapter elects a president, who is automatically appointed to the national board. A further five national directors are appointed to the board by direct election from the membership, of whom three must be franchisor members, and three directors from any membership category, plus the executive director, making a maximum of 12 directors.

The FCA is closely affiliated with franchising associations around the world, and is a founding member of the Asia Pacific Franchise Confederation (APFC). It is also a member of the World Franchise Council (WFC) and for 1999 and 2000 managed the secretariat for the World Franchise Council.
