IFA mission statement.

The mission of the International Franchise Association, founded in 1960, is to protect, enhance and promote franchising. IFA serves as a resource center for current and prospective franchisees and franchisors, the media, and the government. IFA has been instrumental in developing legislation that safeguards franchising from abuse by fraudulent operators. The Association has testified on behalf of programs that expand opportunities for women and minorities in franchising.

IFA's membership is comprised of full members, associate members, subsidiaries, international members, franchisee members, educational members, fellow associations and supplier members. IFA represents 30,000 members both domestically and internationally.
