The Austrian Franchise Association

The Austrian Franchise Association (ÖFV) is the representative of the Austrian franchise economy. As integrated driving force of the franchise world in Austria the association represents the interests of its members and accelerates the discourse between economy, science, politics, and the public to ensure a sustainable franchise quality control in the country. This is possible through the ÖFV system check that all members have to pass at least once. After a system passes the test it is entitled to carry the ÖFV quality seal as a „verified member“. This communicates the systems quality as well as a high degree of satisfaction amongst its franchise partners to potential, new franchisees. The Austrian Franchise Association is a well established communication platform and continuously focuses on the expansion of the image and awareness level of franchising. Additionally, it functions as a link between franchise systems and potential franchise partners and provides its members with access to a comprehensive network of experts. The wide range of member offers of the association also includes topic oriented events. The ÖFV is located in Brunn am Gebirge and is home to around 135 members.

Franchise Business Club

The Franchise Business Club is the largest interactive franchise community in German-speaking countries. Everyone who feels connected to the franchise and/or licensing business meets in the club. Communication connects is the motto of the Franchise Business Club! Nothing is more important than the right communication between the franchise centres, their employees and franchise partners, consultants, the many people interested in franchising and start-ups. Our aim is to advise our clients across industries and target groups and to optimise or sometimes even make communication possible in the first place. Further information about the club and the services can be found on our homepage or at XING in the franchise group.
